This coming Saturday 15th June, Allerton Road is THE place to be in South Liverpool as the brand new event ‘I Love Alerton Road’ takes place.
The monthly Allerton Road Farmer’s Market is expanding, with a record number of stall holders due to participate. A number of shops will be offering taster sessions and running special promotions throughout the day AND The Lord Mayor of Liverpool will be in attendance to celebrate local love for the busiest high street outside of the city centre.
Local councillor Richard Kemp said of the event:
“Allerton Road is the ‘jewel in the crown’ of South Liverpool but we want to work together to boost activity and to help our small, local independent shops. People are looking more and more carefully at where their purchases, especially food purchases, come from. The local shops and the farmer’s market provide a challenge to the bland products of the big chain stores.”
Allerton Road has one of the widest selections of good, locally-run businesses in Liverpool. It has recently seen the opening of a new bakers and is home to many fine purveyors of food and drink such as The Interesting Eating Company, Oddbins and more.
Here at Down South Liverpool we are thrilled to see local councillors working with residents and traders to ensure the continual success of one of our favourite places to be.
Lord Mayor Gary Millar will be present 1-3pm and local councillors will have their usual open air advice centre. The Waltones will be performing and there will be opportunity to win an exclusive performance for yourself and your friends as well.
