Welcome to our brand new Food Assembly in Ancoats!
We've assembled a great line-up of local farmers and artisan food makers to offer their products for you, everything from fresh vegetables and grass-fed beef from Cheshire, to delicious hand-made pasta and chocolates made right here in the heart of Manchester.
Our online markets open on Friday each week. You can browse the products and shop until midnight on Tuesday - then come along to Seven Bro7hers Beerhouse between 5pm and 7pm on the following Thursday to collect your orders. While you're there you can chat to producers, meet your neighbours and maybe enjoy a delicious locally-brewed pint or snack from the pub kitchen.
Keep an eye on our Facebook page and Twitter feed for news and updates as well! We are free to join and open to everyone whether you live in Ancoats, work in Manchester City Centre or you're a neighbour, friend or visitor.
We're all about supporting small-scale independent food producers, reducing food miles and waste, championing regional food for city dwellers and perhaps most importantly making shopping more fun!
So welcome to our new community and please don't hesitate to get in touch if you have any queries or good ideas.
Looking forward to meeting you soon.
Why join The Food Assembly?
Eat the most delicious and freshest food in your area. Locally sourced and more transparent, the average distance of food travelled is only 28 miles!
No commitment to buy and joining is free. Sharing recipes and cooking tips with your neighbours is just an extra bonus.
Our food producers are passionate about growing and making your food, that's why we pay them over 80% for their work, in comparison to 20-50% from supermarkets.
We are about real people and real food: when you pick up your order, you get to connect with your community and food in a healthier way.
