Take a fresh look at Fleetwood Market Cafe

Colin HindWhat’s on the menu these days as Fleetwood Market Cafe opens its doors for business?

Meet new cafe operator Colin Hind. With almost 30 years in the food industry, Colin has acquired a wealth of knowledge and experience which he will now bring to his most recent business venture, Fleetwood Market Cafe. Colin says; “It’s quite simply named Fleetwood Market Cafe – as that’s exactly what it is!”

Fleetwood resident Colin added: “I have been working in the family-run business for 27 years, 17 of them I have been owner of Capricorn Cafe in the seaside town. I’ve worked in the food industry one way or another since leaving school. Starting my career at the North Euston Hotel in Fleetwood as a kitchen porter I then moved onto a supervisory role within a major supermarket. It was at this time that the opportunity arose to buy Capricorn Cafe.

Colin, Julie and Mayor of WyreWhen I found out the market cafe was up for lease I couldn’t let the chance go by. I know the industry very well; I enjoy working with the public and meeting people and I am now keen to expand my career in a busier environment and I can’t wait to become a part of the Fleetwood Market family. We offer a varied menu of breakfasts, toasties, salads and main meals with vegetarian options also provided. Customers can also enjoy a varied selection of fresh cream cakes too. Our first week of trading has exceeded my expectations – we’ve been rushed off our feet and long may it continue.”

Today marks the dawning of a new era for experienced market trader Rob Brown as he opens “Syke’s Deli” at the seaside shopping experience that is Fleetwood Market……..

“My name is Robert Brown and people who visit the market will know me in my previous role as owner of Market Pet Supplies.

After 10 years with the pet stall I fancied a new business venture before I retire and felt a market deli was something I could get me teeth into, so to speak.

As a fond reminder of my time at the pet stall I chose to name my new business after family pet Skye, our bearded collie dog.

My wife and I are somewhat “afternoon tea aficionados” and this was reason enough to bring a great afternoon tea offer to shoppers at Fleetwood Market aswell as other delicious treats to try. With the help of Wyre Council we have worked together to renovate the unit and it is looking great and we’re excited to get going.
Where possible we source all our produce locally – from breakfasts to lite bites for lunches, cheeses to olives, cakes to coffee there’s lots on offer.

We’ll have new specials each day so there’ll be something to tasty to try every time you visit. Ably assisted by Dave (affectionately referred to as head chef) you’re guaranteed a warm welcome so pay us a visit soon, your business is our pleasure.”
Skye’s Deli is open every market day; Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday year round from 9am – 4.30pm.
