About the Market

Ashton’s historic market is one of the busiest and most popular indoor and outdoor in the North West region. Our delightful market town is a must for groups, coach parties and day trippers.

With great choice, high quality and value for money our market attracts thousands of shoppers every day, from all over the region.

There’s good disabled access around the outdoor and indoor markets, and good public transport access – with the bus station, railway station and Metrolink stop each only a short walk away.

Outdoor Market

Open seven days a week. The market provides permanent, covered stalls so, even if the weather is mixed, it needn't spoil your enjoyment.

  • Flea market on Tuesdays
  • Table top sale every Sunday except for the last Sunday in the month
  • ‘Farmers and Producers’ market with all items fresh and grown locally.

Indoor Market

Open six days a week. The indoor market has an amazing range of quality goods including good old favourite sweets of yesteryear, bedding, gifts, clothing, food, even baby wear and dry cleaners. Our communal seating area allows you to rest, eat, drink and chat in the market and even keep in touch with your e-mails and business with our free wi-fi.

You can now also take a virtual tour of the stalls in Ashton market!
