Makers Market Northern Quarter Manchester
Sunny Sunday: an exception, not the rule.

On every second Sunday of the month, the Makers Market set up shop in the Northern Quarter. There is delicious food, gifts, antiques, prints, and handmade jewellery all done locally and sold by the makers (hence the name). It's in Stevenson Square. I went there to visit a friend who makes prints, souvenirs and printed clothes with Mexican style designs.

I was, however, distracted quickly by the presence of a tempting burger called "Fiery Bull" burger. The shop selling it was called "What's Your Beef" and promised yellow peppers and fiery hot sauce among its ingredients. It even had a mild version in case one founds the regular one too spicy.

Tempted enough I ordered the regular one. I was aching for a spice challenge and this burger had no chance at winning. They thought hot peppers where their allies, but I was born in Mexico, raised by spiciness, nurtured with jalapenos, I didn't taste a mild flavour until I was a grown man, and by then it was nothing but flavourless. Eating the burger was going to be extremely painful...

to the burger. I'm used to spicy food, is what I'm trying to say.
The burger was delicious, not to spicy (for me) but very juicy and sweet. After eating it I went to the tea shop and had a cup of cold fruity tea to finish my lunch in the sun.

Overall, the Makers Market is great for a Sunday walk. Go on the second Sunday of the month, shop around, grab a bite and hopefully enjoy a sunny day.
