ARTISAN and Etsy Manchester have teamed up to bring back the successful Marketfest February 26 from 12pm in Spinningfields, Manchester.
Etsy Manchester will be providing stalls such as face painting and cupcake decorating for kids.
This is the first Marketfest launched this year and Spinningfields plan on trying to make it a monthly event.

When speaking to Artisan, they explained that they have done a couple of events before and their last event in November was successful.
Vicky Hodgkisson from Artisan explains what will be at the event:
“We have four stall holders coming in, live music and if you book online we have 40% off Sunday roasts. We are also hoping to have a workshop but it is in the process of being confirmed.”
Artisan tells us that it is going to be very kid friendly and that the event lasts until 5pm.
The workshops are unconfirmed and may be printing or a calligraphy class if they can get it in time.
Vicky Hodgkisson continued: “The main drive for us is that Sundays are genuinely quiet for bar and restaurants because it is a family day. It has been good for us to get kids in and families to have a day out.
“We have had a lot of feedback saying that families look for a day out for them and their kids to enjoy and this offers it for them.”
Already, there are 150 people booked in for the event and they are hoping for more.
