Rochdale Riverside will welcome the addition of a German market alpine hut plus the Rochdale Food and Artisans’ Fayre this weekend.

From Thursday 3 December, the Baum will be opening a little German Market Alpine Hut in time for Christmas.

‘Baum Haus Riverside’ will be serving German hotdogs, homemade cakes, waffles, hot chocolate, giant pretzels, fresh coffee, cold drinks, mulled wine, festive grazing boxes and more.

The Baum team said: “We are really looking forward to meeting you all on our opening day this Thursday.

“The council and the team at the Rochdale Riverside have worked hard to get someone local operating in these difficult times, it would be fabulous if we could see you and safely say Merry Christmas

“Pop over to see us for some opening day deals on all things Christmas market.”

Baum Haus Riverside will be open seven days a week and is found opposite H&M.


Rochdale Food and Artisans' Fayre


Taking place on Saturday 5 December, the very best local cheeses, farm-reared meat, roasted coffee, delicious preserves and so much more will all be found at the new Rochdale Food and Artisans’ Fayre.

The Fayre is brought to Rochdale by Lisa Reedy, who has been running local artisan markets for the last two years, including Rawtenstall, and has been a market trader for over 10 years.

Previously hosted at the Wheatsheaf Centre, this has now moved to the new Riverside complex in Rochdale town centre.

Running on the first Saturday of every month, this fayre will showcase a passionate and dedicated group of makers, bakers, crafters, producers and rearers - bringing their finest ranges to customers from 9am - 3pm.
