Urmston Artisan Market
1st Saturday of every month 10am – 4pm
Railway Road M41 0XL
Urmston Artisan Market is now firmly set as one of the highlights on the town’s calendar and takes place on the 1st Saturday every month right in the heart of town on the market place.
Urmston is a town in Trafford, Greater Manchester, with a population of around 41,000. Historically in Lancashire, it is about six miles (10 km) southwest of Manchester city centre. The southern boundary is the River Mersey, with Stretford lying to the east and Flixton to the west. Davyhulme lies to the north of the town centre.
The town has early medieval origins, and until the arrival of the railway in 1873 was a small farming community. The railway acted as a catalyst, transforming the town into a residence for the middle classes. Today, Urmston is one of the major urban areas in Trafford.
The market takes place once a month throughout the year and consists of nearly 100 of the very finest artisan market traders.
Our selection process is exacting so you will find a high-quality range of authentic goods with an emphasis on all that is local, ethical and original. Our traders are all super-talented and we expect great things of them.
Whether it is something for dinner, a gift for a friend, a treat for someone special or simply stocking up on essentials that you can’t get elsewhere – Urmston Artisan Market is the place to visit. No matter what the weather rain or shine, the market will enliven your spirit, and combined with a scout around the shops and time out in a restaurant; it’s a great day out!
