  • To be honest it has been a while since i last shopped there. I used to buy all of my jeans from there but compared to what they used to charge they seem to have gone up quite alot in price. There are much cheaper places around Bolton now to buy your denim from. They do have a shop named smart clothing which sell good fashion for reasonable prices.
  • Excellent market newly refurbished it's cheap, with loads of products, British, Indian and even a couple of Caribbean takeaways there is also a bar serving real ales! If you like fresh fish, meats and loads of interesting vegetables from around the world while listening to the store holder's touting there wares it's definitely a place to visit. I no longer live in Bolton but if there was one thing I could move nearer to my new home it would be this market.
  • Have been using. Bolton for about 30years it has changed. a lot but has a very varied indoor and outdoor. Market good free parking and shops to rival. Manchester
  • Need more automated cash machines, one is simply not enough, also maybe a warden to check that everyone pays for parking. I have seen so many people simply just park up and walk off. If I have to pay £1.40 for a few minutes,then so does Tom,Dick and Harry.
  • Love the Meat, Fish and fruit and veg market. Great fresh food at reasonable prices. The atmosphere is great too....
