Manchester’s Arndale Market scoops Best Casual Dining Award

Congratulations to Manchester’s Arndale Market who scooped Best Casual Dining Award at City Life Awards 2020.

From the Manchester Evening News:

“Food halls are everywhere now. But long before the term became trendy, the Arndale Food Market was quietly doing its thing, with a collection of independent traders slinging out top-notch food at rock-bottom prices.

“Squeezed in between the twinkling LEDs of mobile phone shops and glint of gold jewellery stalls, you’ll find a cornucopia of world cuisine whisking you from China to Canada and everywhere in between, all in one lunch hour.

“A recent expansion has seen the number – and quality – of traders shoot up, with newcomers including Holy Crab, Wholesome Junkies, Blue Caribou Canteen and Firebird Hope joining established favourites such as Viet Shack and Pancho’s Burritos.

“The market has become a vital stepping stone for so many independent businesses, bridging the gap between street food events and full-blown restaurants – and nurturing a loyal customer following along the way.”
