Old Granada Studios, Manchester’s new arts and cultural neighbourhood, has announced its series of weekly markets starting from 5th April.


A brand new offering for the region, every Saturday and Sunday Old Granada Studios will come alive with street vendors, exclusive operators, community events and live performances.

From 11am – 5pm, Old Granada Studios markets will host a hugely dynamic and varying offering from art and design, craft, gourmet and street food through to fashion and vintage.

The iconic destination will welcome the themed markets – some for the first time to Manchester, providing a truly unique atmosphere for visitors to sample the most exciting stalls and boutiques in the country, right in the heart of city centre.

The debut weekend will see the launch of Urban Market BITE – Manchester’s first weekend gourmet and street food markets on Saturday 5th April alongside the Finders Keepers flea market on 6th April.
BITE will host a huge array of food stalls offering gourmet expertise and inspiring hospitality created by specialists within the new foodie hub.

For the first Sunday of every month, commencing on 6th April, Old Granada Studios will become home to the Finders Keepers market. Spanning the gamut of second-hand shopping, the stalls and boutiques will showcase unique finds from vintage to bric-a-brac, antiques, collectables and objet d’art.
The following weekend will see the new cultural neighbourhood come alive with arts, craft and design with Urban Market Makers –a homage to all things craft on Saturday 12th , including workshops, and the Urban Market Art & Design markets on 13th, featuring fresh and talented local artists.

Coinciding with the launch of the Coronation Street Tour, Old Granada Studios is set to become the must-visit destination for families, tourists and city dwellers alike.

Hosted within an exceptional, quintessentially Mancunian setting, Old Granada Studios has inherited its culture and has embraced its world-renowned attributes and with the recent inclusion of the urban markets, this hugely iconic destination is set to be kept on the map for years to come.
