Ashton Under Lyne Artisan Market

Ashton Artisan Market will be set as one of the highlights on the town’s calendar and will take place on the last Saturday every month on the Market Place right in the heart of town.

Ashton-under-Lyne is a market town in Tameside, Greater Manchester, England. The population was 45,198 at the 2011 census. Historically in Lancashire, it is on the north bank of the River Tame, in the foothills of the Pennines, 6.2 miles (10.0 km) east of Manchester.

The market takes place once a month throughout the year and consists of nearly 100 of the very finest artisan market traders.

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!
