Stockport Food Hall • Something For Everyone

Stockport Food Hall • Something For Everyone

Stockport Produce Hall

Opening next week Stockport Produce Hall or as my Dad likes to call it “the old egg market” is finally opening its doors to the people of Stockport. 

Set in the historic market place in the centre of town this fantastic addition is going to be the new meeting, eating, and drinking establishment we have all been waiting for. 

Joining the ever-growing businesses opening their doors The Produce Hall is no doubt going to be a breath of fresh air. 

Upon entry you are greeted by a large bar with a wide variety of craft ales including Stockport’s own Thirst Class Ale. The team behind The Produce Hall opted to add windows to the bar so you can literally see the beer travelling from its home straight to your glass. 

Whilst this is cool enough there is also an array of other drinks ready to be made by the attentive staff behind the bar. 

As you make your way past the bar you are greeted by the hall with a number of bench seating, tables, stools and standing areas. They have created an environment that matches the ever popular Mackie Mayor/ alty market style venue. The space encourages conversation due to its shared seating space. The team also added a stage which when not being used for live music sits below the fantastic old windows with views over the Stockport Horizon. We recommend sitting here during sunset because the views are fantastic. 

Now to the food… and wow there is lots of it. 

The food hall offers something for everyone. Here comes a list: Tapas, Fish & Chips or (Oh My Cod), Pie Curious, Dough boys (pizza), Roost Chicken, Fat Louis (American style), Pasta and Black Market Expresso. 

There are some Vegan and Veggie options but as we visited on the soft launch I have been told there will be a greater variety added soon! 

We were incredibly happy to see that all the food options were really affordable; something that we were hoping to see. 

Once seated you really get to take in the room around you. Our eyes were drawn to the Stockport artwork on the wall created by local artist Eamonn Murphy. It’s also great to see many of the old features that have been brought back to life. Especially the old lighting that has been wonderfully refurbished. 

The team have also created a cool co-working/dining/seating area upstairs which is a great place to sit and watch the world go by. The best part is making your way up using the locally crafted iron spiral staircase. Who doesn’t love a spiral staircase though? Let’s be honest. 

Steve Pilling, the man behind the project, told us that “it’s all about bringing people together in the town that they love”. 

Without harping on too much we see great things for this space and recommend all of you take a trip into Stockport rather than heading into the city centre.

As always Embrace the Local.
