The building itself is worth the visit, a lovely old Victorian building, very well maintained. The stalls are also good with a good range of different things for sale, plus cafes. This is a nice part of the old town, so you can combine a...More

Unfortunately could not go to Stockport mersy way shops as car park entrance broken so you coudnt enter. Unfortunately no other car parks available. An absolute disgrace ...... poor shops must be doing hardly any trade at all.

Lovely old indoor market hall, housing numerous quite unique stalls. Not your usual market tat, some quality items sit well within an overall wide range of goods. A very eye-catching structure both inside and out, always worth a visit.

A market sadly declining because lazy unimaginative traders are unwilling to embrace change. The product offering is dire and the hours and days the traders are willing to make themselves available is frankly laughable.

Yes, we know the market itself has dwindled a lot since the 80s - but if I'm honest, I remember the 80s market well and it was dirty and had a lot of tat. We were there on Saturday and there were still market stalls...More

A once busy bustling market completely destroyed by bumbling councillors. They should be ashamed. Not worth bothering.
