A Festival of Good Food in Tameside


This year Tameside Markets have joined forces with About Tameside magazine to present the Tameside Food Festival 2015. The event ties in with Love Your Local Market and the annual Celebrate Tameside Food & Drink Awards. Beginning on May 9th on Denton Civic Square you will find a mix of food retailers offering fresh produce and hot food to make your mouth water. There will be live cooking demonstrations by the Ashton Farmers’ Market Chef and free food crafts for the children. Joining the fun will be Teddy Tameside and Maggie the Magpie, Tameside Market’s mascot. For the first event in Denton we will be welcoming the Mayor of Tameside, Cllr Dawson Lane, who will be meeting some of the local food traders.

Organisers have been delighted to have support from local Town Teams from Ashton-under-Lyne, Droylsden, Denton and Hyde to bring these events to the town centres. There is also additional sponsorship from Irwell Valley Housing and Santander. The second event will actually be part of Stalybridge Farmers’ Market on May 10th around Armentieres Square.

The Food Festival will be appearing at some key locations in Tameside comprising:

May 9th – Denton Civic Square
May 10th – Armentieres Square, Stalybridge
May 16th – Villemomble Square, Droylsden
May 23rd – Civic Square, Hyde
May 30th – Market Ground, Ashton-under-Lyne.

Visitors to the event will also be able to find out more about the local town teams, the Tameside Loyalty Card and how to vote for their favourite café, restaurant, bakers/confectioners and take-away.

Come along for a great day out and support some of the great food outlets we have here in Tameside.
