Welcome to the Biddulph Twilight Market. The Garden Town of Staffordshire has held a market in the town in various formats for many years.
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, which now operates 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.
We cannot change the day of the market here in Biddulph, but we would love it if more of you could attend.
We’re therefore, trialling a Twilight Market in the Town Hall and on the frontage, to complement the High Street offering, starting from 3.30pm.
Our first Twilight Market took place on Friday 6 May 2022. Select Fish and Cheshire Pie were on our Town Hall frontage 9am to 3pm and the following traders from 3.30pm to 7.30pm:
I Would Like to Trade on Your Market!
Welcome! Biddulph is a small and friendly market.
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.
If you are thinking of starting a business, looking to extend your business reach, or grow your venture, then a market stall is perfect for you.
We do this by following guidance from the market authority, NABMA. Our market terms and conditions are shown below and an application form is on the right. You can also pick up a paper application and terms and conditions from the Town Hall’s Reception.
