Weekly artisan food market a fixture in Reading

Following a successful summer trial, the new Reading Artisan Food Market will become a Food_019_web.jpgweekly event in Reading town centre until at least the end of the year.

Reading UK CIC has extended the provisional permission to Your Event Organisers to operate the Friday Artisan Food Market until Christmas. It is hoped that the market, which is based in Market Place, will continue to grow over the autumn months and ultimately become a permanent fixture in Reading.

The Market provides a range of hot and cold food, ranging from English cheeses, artisan bread, gluten free produce and fruit and veg and to hot food stalls serving the best of Caribbean food, vegetarian fare, Mexican or South East Asian dumplings.

The new market was launched during Eat Reading live in June  and has quickly become popular with workers and visitors to the town centre.
