This week's trader spotlight - Back on Track

Back on Track is a charity based in central Manchester, who work with adults who are going through a process of recovery or rehabilitation - whether its through problems with alcohol or drugs, offending, homelessness and mental health. 

Their stall is run by people rebuilding their lives and this in turn gives them valuable skills and experience.  The money they make goes back into charity projects so give them your support!

Rachel Gilkes, Senior Enterprise Coordinator at Back on Track says: "We specialise in fresh homemade baked goods, in particular vegan and gluten free items. 

"Our ‘Vegan Supercookies’ are particularly popular. These are made using grains, spelt flour and lots of dried fruits and nuts. Our range of brownies are also very popular, particularly the coconut chocolate brownies."

"We love the opportunity to meet new people at the market and share the great news about Back on Track, what our social enterprise ‘Swan Kitchen’ is all about and the positive changes people who are involved with it are making in their lives."

If you like the sound of what's on offer from Back on Track or any of the other traders, come along and try some treats!

About Levenshulme Market

The chance to run regular weekly markets and a night market at our University marks further growth for Levenshulme Market, which was launched as a social enterprise in 2013 with a monthly market on the train station car park in Levenshulme. In 2014 the market started operating weekly on Saturdays and in 2015, was revealed as one of just three finalists for Best Food Market in the BBC’s Food and Farming Awards.
