And we must say, we’re hardly surprised. Providing fantastic local produce for over 500 years now, Bury Market has long held a place in the heart of Mancs – and has over 370 stalls to potter, with pretty much everything you could think of on offer. An Aladdin’s Cave, if we may.
Coming out on top for the second time (the last time being 2019), Bury Market has officially been named ‘Britain’s Favourite Market’ in the 2022 Great British Market Awards, beating hundreds of others across the country to the top spot – including famous markets such as Borough Market and York’s Shambles Market.
Councillor Mick Barker, President of NABMA, said of Bury Market’s win: “After over 30,000 public votes were received online, it is heartening to see passion and enthusiasm for markets across the country.
“Year on year this competition demonstrates the value and pride that towns and cities place in their local market and the innovation and diversity that applies in modern market management. Congratulations to Bury Market.”
The award-winning market is famed for its black pudding stalls, and is open Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays every single week. The Market Hall is open six days a week, and shoppers will find tons of local produce, including fish, meet, cheese and more under its roof.
Other areas of the market boast plenty of independent traders, serving up fresh food, clothing, gifts, books and so much more.
