nice atmosphere feel welcome friendly store holders all of which are helpful and knowledge. special mention to Noah's ark pet supplies who have gone the extra mile on many occasions including home delivery of heavy and bulky items. We have shopped at the market for more than 40 years and nearly always find what we want.

The market outside tends to have the best stalls. There's one that sells ex m&s stuff as well as from George, another that sells kids stuff that is ex Nutmeg (Morrison's.). Last week I visited a stall that had a stack of clothes all priced at £2, which was made up of tops and dresses so there's quite a few... More

Widnes Market has so much to offer that we rarely need to travel outside of the town to shop. Everything from food, clothes, household goods, pet supplies, hairdressers, opticians, café - you name it you'll probably find it there. Friendly stallholders.

I live nearer to Warrington market than Widnes market but I would always choose to go to Widnes. All the stall holders are very friendly and helpful. The fish man is fab. We got our whole Salmon from him for Christmas and it worked out cheaper than the supermarket. The prawns are fresh and sweet. Make sure you visit the... More

Widnes market was fantastic 10 years ago, but in the time I've lived in widnes it's gone massively downhill. Absolutely no improvements have been made to the market pretty much since it opened, and many of the better stalls have closed in the downturn we find ourselves in. Now I fully understand that this isn't the councils fault, but a... More

Nothing special about this market, outside markets pretty poor. Inside markets a bit better, I suppose it kind of has what your looking for but not enticing. Needs update now!
