Independent Liverpool are opening Liverpool’s first food market this summer


Independent Liverpool and Tim Haggis, the man behind Meet Frank hotdogs, have joined together to bring us Liverpool’s first ever food hall, The Baltic Market.

Unlike Camp & Furnace’s previous weekly food slam event, the market is set to be a permanent feature after its opening in June.

The food hall will live in Cains Brewery in The Baltic Triangle, recently voted the coolest place to live in the UK by the Sunday Times.

It will offer a variety of stalls from up to 10 independent restaurants and food outlets accross the city. The line-up will change frequently, so don’t expect to only visit once.

It’s not only food that the space will hold though. There will also be a “special cocktail” offering as well as a bar with local craft beer and even gin.

Every weekend the space will be host to parties with disco DJs, film screenings, quiz nights, live bands and more.


Co-founder Oliver Press said: “We believe that we would become the anchor tenant of Cains brewery and we would attract so many new people to the site. We would really kick-start the idea of a brewery village. Cains is such an iconic brand and building in Liverpool with a colourful history. We want to contribute to the history of Cains, and we hope that our chapter will be remembered for many years to come.”

His co-founder David Williams added: “Our food hall would be the taste of Liverpool. We would have a mixture of established independent Liverpool businesses, street food vendors, and we would also become a food incubator for newly qualified chefs from local colleges, and/or budding restauranteurs who want to trial their idea before they make the ambitious move of getting their own premises.”

The site is still being built currently, but have a look at the mock ups below.
