CHESTER’S indoor market is welcoming two new traders with more to follow during the month.

'Stile Napoletano' will be bringing the taste of authentic Neapolitan style pizza to the Market. Pizza chef Guido Giacomo, originally from Ischia, won an award for best pizza whilst based in London that was described by the Times as “divinely light and airy”.

Using pure, organic ingredients from Italy and good local produce, Guido will be bringing something different and new to Chester.

From a family of bakers, 'Crustum' will be offering artisan bread and pastries plus simple and authentic dishes using local ingredients. From their relaxed and informal open plan kitchen the focus will be on wholesome food and good coffee.

Both businesses will open on Saturday, March 3.

Councillor Brian Clarke, Cabinet Member for Economic Development and Infrastructure, said: “Welcome to Chester, I’m looking forward to sampling Guido’s pizza and trying our new bakers.

“The market will be welcoming three further businesses during March which will complement the offering of niche stalls. There will be a home and gift boutique, handcrafted sculptures made from reclaimed metals, and a fabulous tapas bar. This is a taste of how the market is changing and preparing for their new Chester Northgate home in the future.”

Chester Market is evolving its offer to customers and will provide a food-court style seating area to complement the many new food establishments. There will be an event calendar with live entertainment, cooking demonstrations and a book club.
