Bowlee Car Boot Sale and Market

Sunday 26 May 2024
6am for sellers, 7am for public - 1.30pm

Bowlee Community Park
Heywood Old Road

Bowlee Car Boot Sale & Market - one of the biggest in Greater Manchester.

If it's time for a de-clutter, you can easily offload your unwanted possessions in exchange for cash, or explore and bag yourself a bargain. There's a huge range of goods available.

Because the event is run by Rochdale Borough Council, you can be sure all the right checks are done so you know you're buying and selling in a legal, safe environment.​

The site is open to buyers from 7am to 1.30pm and there are 1,200 car parking spaces in Bowlee Park for £2.50 per vehicle for buyers.

For sellers, there is no need to book. Just turn up and pay at the gate:

  • Cars: £15
  • Estate vehicles, small vans, people carriers, 4x4s: £20
  • Large transit van upwards: £25

Help reduce delays on arrival

  • Sellers - please don't arrive too early - we don't open our gates until 6am. You won't get on site and will be waiting longer.
  • Buyers - please don't arrive more than 5 minutes before opening time - the buyers' car park opens at 6.15am.
  • If you can, please bring the exact change to pay on the gate. This will save us time and means everyone gets on site faster.

There will be increased on-site signage and a new drop off/pick up point for buyers near the entrance to speed up access. Sellers must take all their rubbish home when leaving the site.

There will be no last minute cancellations - if poor weather is forecast a decision will be announced by 6pm the day before the sale.
