Oldham Council to launch new traditional market in Chadderton

Oldham Council is launching a new traditional market in the heart of Chadderton on Wednesday 5 April.

The new market will take place in Chadderton Precinct (OL9 0LQ), just outside Asda supermarket.

The traders will operate between 9am – 4pm every Wednesday – giving shoppers the full day to explore the range of goods on offer.

Its history can be traced back to the 1920s when it took place every Thursday on Wellington Street.

The market continued until around 1935 and then re-started in December 1985 until around 2005.

Leader of Oldham Council, Councillor Jean Stretton, said:

“The market was a huge part of Chadderton’s history throughout the years and we want to carry on that tradition.

“We need to use Oldham’s markets to help keep the local economy thriving for years to come.

“I encourage everyone to visit the market and take a look at the traditional goods on offer, I certainly will.”

Love Your Local Market, the national celebration of markets, takes place between 17 – 31 May.

The campaign encourages everyone to support their local market and Oldham will be taking part.
