Exciting business opportunities at Heywood Magic Market

Date published: 22 October 2019

A number of exciting business opportunities are now available at the historic Heywood Magic Market.

Set in the heart of Heywood, the market has enjoyed hundreds of years of trading since it is believed to have opened in the 1800s. Over the last 18 years – since the launch of Heywood Magic Development Trust – the market has seen vast improvements and has exciting and ambitious plans for continued upgrades over the coming months.

After many years of success, the market’s cobbler is retiring and managers are looking for someone experienced in this trade to take over and pick up existing, local business.

All tools and machinery will be provided and rates for the 25-foot x 8.5-foot stall are extremely competitive, with incentives offered.


Fruit and veg


A fruit and veg stall is also open to new traders and has long been one of the most popular within markets among shoppers looking to purchase fresh, organic produce.

Again, rates are extremely competitive with start-up incentives offered.

Chair and local resident Susan Coates said: “Shopping local and supporting independent businesses has never been more important. We’re proud to bring a wide variety of quality products to the Heywood community and provide a convenient place to see new and familiar faces. It is an exciting time to join the enthusiastic team, with lots happening in the future.

“We have exciting plans to continue to improve the market’s facilities, increase footfall and welcome a new generation of shoppers - now is the ideal time to launch a business here and watch as it thrives.”

Availability is immediate and other opportunities include hosiery/nightwear, underwear, children/teens clothing, curtains, hardware/DIY and soft furnishings to name a few.

Or you can use the market as the perfect place to launch your own idea!
