Wilmslow Artisan Market
3rd Saturday of every month 10am – 4pm
Alderley Road SK9 1PB
Wilmslow Artisan Market is one of the highlights on the town’s calendar and takes place on the 3rd Saturday every month right in the heart of town adjacent to the main Alderley Road.
Wilmslow is a wonderful, renowned Cheshire town situated 11 miles south of Manchester with a population of approximately 30,000 and stands on the river Bollin. It boasts a number of exceptional independent retail stores, café’s and restaurants including its very own department store Hoopers.
The market takes place once a month throughout the year and consists of over 120 of the very finest artisan market traders and is the flagship of The Market Co’s events, having won a number of both regional and national awards since its conception in July 2011.
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 – the Spitalfields of the North West.
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 – Wilmslow 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!
