Cheshire Live on Congleton Market Quarter

Shoppers flocked to a pre-launch party ahead of the opening of Cheshire’s newest artisan market. Dozens of vendors showcased their wares at Congleton Market Quarter as the hosts prepare to declare it open.

‘’If tonight is like this than I reckon the market will do wonders for the High Street and the towns economy. I’m thrilled to see as many people here as there are, I have to keep filling my shelves as the pies are selling so quickly.’’
