Winter Street Food Market at Salt and Tar

Outdoor events hub Salt and Tar is getting into the Christmas spirit with a fabulously festive market.

There’ll be food traders with mouthwatering cuisine from around the world, music, kids’ activities, gift stalls, and more, at the Winter Street Food Market at Salt and Tar in Bootle, from Friday, December 8 to Sunday, December 10. 

Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said:

“Over the past year, we’ve had some fantastic events at Salt and Tar, which has showcased its potential as a popular new outdoor venue.

“I can’t wait to welcome everyone back to see our Winter Street Food Market.

“There will be plenty on offer for the whole family to get you into the Christmas spirit, from delicious food and drinks, to live entertainment. It’s going to be a wonderful way to celebrate the end of the year and enjoy the festive atmosphere at Salt and Tar.” 

Entry is free – along with many, if not most, of the activities and the Winter Street Food Market is a pilot event for Salt and Tar before it launches its full events and entertainment programme next year.

Earlier this year, it played host to a successful Comedy Weekender followed by a music festival in July, which saw more than 6,000 visitors attend and enjoy the venue. Top performers included Cast, Red Rum Clubm and The Lathums.
