More developments at The Produce Hall I
t’s been six months since the doors opened on the historic, majestic Stockport Produce Hall at the very heart of Stockport market place!
So many wonderful things have been achieved for Stockport and the wider community since then and in such a short space of time. Up to 50 new jobs have been created, with over half of them being long term unemployed including young mums and veterans who were living in hostels. They have, and continue to have a great ongoing relationship with Stockport Homes and there has been breath-taking results on regeneration and increased footfall to the area. Coming soon we are told, is a partnership with Black Market Espresso Co who are based inside the Hall as an independent trader to get Stockport’s unemployed into work with barista training of the highest level. And excitingly in the pipeline a ‘Hospitality Training Academy’ in Stockport. They have been providing live music and DJ’s every weekend, yoga social sessions and unique children and family led events such as pizza making and pumpkin carving sessions, aiming to cater for all the community. And of course the addition of the marvellous independent traders new and old: both Angkor Soul and Chaat cart have made a massive impact on not only the level of variety within the hall but also the quality. It is truly amazing the impact and positive energy that continues to grow in and around The Produce Hall and there is much excitement for the future. Big Thanks to everybody who has, and continues to support them and Stockport!
All thats great in Stockport Town Centre including the full Christmas schedule
