The Bents Winter Food Market is back, with more stands, stalls and chalets than ever before.  2018 is the year to head over to your nearest garden centre, here on Warrington Road to try our sizzling sausages, sweet crepes and other delicious seasonal snacks.

We've built on the huge success of last year's event to add even more dates to the schedule, with the Winter Food Market now open right through to Christmas.

Food is served from midday onwards, with evening entertainment on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays (more details below).

What's served at the Bents Winter Food Market?

Our Bratwurst are the crowd-pleaser but pulled beef Yorkshire pudding wraps

and chili beef hotdogs also feature on the menu. Non-meat eaters can enjoy hot mushroom sandwiches and vegan hotdogs whilst delicious crepes and other sweet treats are the perfect way to round off your meal.

Food is served from our traditional Christmas market chalets along with an extensive drinks menu including mulled wine and a non-alcoholic apple toddy.

Our Winter Food Market is just one of the ways we transform the grounds of our Warrington garden centre into a winter wonderland, with an extensive range of outside Christmas lights and our Christmas tree decorations available too.

You can even buy pre-lit Xmas trees in our Christmas tree selection, so once you've enjoyed all our delicious festive food, you can get everything you need to deck out your home and garden for the season.

So many ways to celebrate the season

We want to give you a memorable stay at our Winter Food Market, and our Open Skies Glass House helps to do just that, providing plenty of shelter whatever the weather - perfect for some seasonal festive snacks on a rainy day.
