Markets in Liverpool are a real institution for the locals. Lake Lane Market is the most important of the town’s farmer’s markets. The “Greamie”, as the inhabitants affectionately call it, is instead one of the historical markets.
In recent times, the Baltic Market, in the lively Baltic Triangle, has become one of the hottest markets in the city. It is a vibrant alternative neighborhood home to independent start-ups around Jamaica Street. A neighborhood with many artistic spaces, informal gastronomic places, a skatepark. A particularly popular place in the evening, between clubs, events and rave-parties.
The market takes place inside the former Cain brewery, named after its creator. A few decades after Cain’s death in 1921, the brewery went out of favor and closed for good. However, the complex has been brought back to life and, today, houses more than 100 local merchants who have decided to relocate their business.
Thus, in what was once the place of beer production, today it is an agglomeration of bars, cafes, vintage shops, co-working spaces.
The real paradise for gourmets and street food lovers, suitable for all tastes and palates. It varies from Israeli street food proposals to Indian and Pakistani cuisine: rice, kati rolls, smoked meats, mussels, crab burgers… Chips, and wood-fired pizzas. There is no shortage of “gluten-free” proposals and an excellent selection of vegan and vegetarian foods.
To spend a relaxing afternoon, or for an evening of fun with friends, the Baltic is the ideal place to spend some time.
The Market is located on Stanhope Street, L8 5XJ, just over a mile from Albert Dock. You can get there by bus, getting off at the Greenland St stop, near the well-known Camp and Furnace club. Line 204 departs from Liverpool One Bus Station, right from the city center.
The market is open from Thursday to Sunday, with the following times:
Not just street food at the Baltic market. On Sunday mornings there are also markets which alternate with the street food market. Flea markets, producers ‘markets, farmers’ markets and more.
