Covid 19 Update
It is with heavy hearts that we announce that we are not yet able to open the market. We are working on ways that we can bring the market back with atmosphere, character and fun whilst maintaining all the new social distancing and hygiene rules. We don’t want to rush, we want to be able to support our wonderful traders as best we can and bring you a safe and varied market.
In the meantime please try to support all local small business during this turbulent time and stay safe till we can meet again.
Welcome to the Biddulph Artisan Market. The Garden Town of Staffordshire has held a market in the town in various formats for many years.
Hosted on the first Friday of the month between 9am and 3pm, traders line the central part of the town outside the Town Hall, to complement the High Street offering.
Why A Friday, When Residents Are Working?
Our neighbouring town of Congleton is a Charter Market, a status which was granted in 1272. This prevents other places in a 6 2/3 mile radius from having a market on a Saturday. Congleton Town Council is not the custodian of this Charter Right, that rests with Cheshire East Council, who now run the Congleton Market. Over the years, Biddulph Town Council has had many discussions about the Charter to ask if we could move our market to a Saturday, but Cheshire East wish to uphold Charter.
I Would Like to Trade on Your Market!
Welcome! Biddulph is a small and friendly market and currently operates around 25 stalls a month.
Our aim for you, as a trader, is that you go home having sold your products and build a loyal customer base here in our town; with that in mind, we won’t flood the market with the same type of products.
We do this by following guidance from the market authority, NABMA. You will find an application form and a copy of our T&Cs in the right hand column.
