I felt compelled to write a review after reading one from someone who sounded like they had got out of the wrong side of the bed. Bury Market is fantastic. In an age dominated by supermarkets and mass production, to find somewhere offering independent retailers and such a range of goods is amazing. And all this in a small Lancashire town. It’s plethora of national and international awards speak for themselves as do the coach parties that come from all over the country.
Why is it so good? Well there is the appeal of the traditional/friendly market, of course, but ultimately it is the products on offer. A fantastic fish and meat hall offering fresh local produce made to order. There’s cheese stalls, beautiful bread and cake stalls and, of course, the famous Bury black pudding. The fruit and veg can’t be any fresher and the seller is often the grower. There’s Indian, Polish, German and now Italian food to be had.
I’m concentrating on the food angle as that it rightly is famous for. But you’ll also find dress making services, clothing, bookstalls, the great find-a-film stall to name just a few. Outside of London, this really is the best market in England. And being in Lancashire, the folk are very friendly, too.
