Shopping At Gorton

Gorton Car Park

This week I went to Gorton for my weekly groceries shopping in Manchester.

Gorton Market

Join in other sky watchers at Sky Watch Friday

Beautiful skies,and the market makes a good subject for it.

I could not find a link to the SkyWatch blog. Please be so kind to make sure your SkyWatch posts are clearly marked and link back to the sight. You can pick up a badge from the site and add your link to that and/or do it in text.

Thanks so much for participating!

What a delightful image that first one is. So clear and crisp and the clouds are so beautiful and fluffy.

I hope you take time this weekend to destress. I see from the post earlier that you are stressed out?

They have a really nice logo. Parking lots offer many fine photo opportunities and I like the every day feeling of parking mixed with the skies.

So what would be a local specialty to go shopping for here?
Per Stromsjo    Wed, 29 Jul 2009 14:32:00 +0800
Per Stromsjo, there's the Manchester Gorton Market which sells poultry, vegs, tools, clothing... all the things you would expect from a market. Next to the market, there's a Tesco Extra (a huge supermarket), a library, and some local shops across the road. Things are normally cheaper here, I think that's about it. haha...
