A night market is coming to Kampus, with independent food vendors set to kick off Manchester’s Garden District summer celebrations in June.

Open on Thursday June 9, the market will offer a range of artisan brands in the garden and on Little David Street.

Among the lineup will be Just Natas, purveyors of traditional Portuguese pies, Osaka Local, which offers Japanese street food, and Bon St Local, which serves its Afro-British hot dishes.

Visitors will also be able to browse and purchase works by artists from the printing house and indulge in the creations of the Witch Kinds Rum cocktail bar, all set to live music.

It follows the successful collaboration between Kampus and Ancoats Pop-Up, with a weekend market on the last Sunday of each already attracting thousands of people to Kampus, opposite Canal Street in Manchester.

The limited series of summer night markets will take place on Thursday July 14, August 11 and September 15.

Alice Longson, of Ancoats Pop-Up, said: “This is our first ever night market and we are delighted to be bringing something new to Manchester’s thriving indie scene.

HBD’s Adam Brady added: “This summer feels like a real party in Kampus. This is our first summer without social distancing restrictions and we have a massive schedule of pop-ups, events, exhibitions and of openings.

“With our residents now fully immersed in neighborhood life, it’s great to add more to the experience of what it’s like to live here, as well as becoming one of Manchester’s must-visit destinations.”
