The brand new lifestyle hall is now open and is home some fantastic new traders including a coffee specialist, a real ale bar, a tropical florist, fashions, a patisserie and some tempting food options in the designated food court and seating area. Add that to an award-winning food hall and you'll find everything from exotic fruit and veg, Mediterranean delis, locally sourced meats and cheeses to the region’s best outlet for fresh fish.

This lively market features an in-store cookery demonstration kitchen with a programme of regular cooking events and seasonal food tastings to add to the shopping experience. Open Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday 9:00 - 17:00. Friday second-hand section and Sunday car boot/flea market 7:30 - 15:00.

The market has a growing reputation as the premier food market in the North West. Voted 'Best Food Market' at the BBC Radio 4 Food and Farming Awards 2011, the market has won a string of awards in recent years including ‘Best Indoor Retail Market 2010’ by the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) and ‘Tourism Retailer of the Year’ at the Manchester Tourism Awards 2009.
