Rochdale Artisan Market
Last Saturday of the month 10am-4pm
The Butts, OL16 1XT
Rochdale Artisan Market is set to become one of the highlights on the town’s calendar and takes place on the last Saturday every month right in the heart of town on The Butts.
Rochdale is a town in Greater Manchester, at the foothills of the South Pennines on the River Roch, 5.3 miles (8.5 km) northwest of Oldham and 9.8 miles (15.8 km) northeast of Manchester.
The market takes place once a month throughout the year and consists 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 – Rochdale 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!
