TOMMYFIELD MARKET HALL: EVERYTHING UNDER ONE ROOF
A really nice market, it reminded me of what Leeds market used to be like before the council put up the rents and forced many stalls to close.
Everything under one roof such as clothes, food, household items, toys and pet supplies.
VERY CLEAN AND TIDY
What to buy: everything and anything.
What to pay: markets are not as cheap as they used to be but there are still bargains to be found.
Spindles shopping centre: Warm up that credit card ooh-er!
Like many towns and cities Oldham has an all enclosed shopping centre called 'The Spindles and this is similar if on a smaller basis to many centres around the UK or 'Malls' that you might find in the U.S.
The Spindles is clean, safe, and you can purchase most things under its roof.
The spindles is also linked to The Town Square shopping centre but to b efrank they might as well be the same.
What to buy: Most Items that you can think off
clothes, phones, books, music etc.
However there is no major food store here
you might want to pop next door to the 'Tommyfield' market (next tip) or to one of the major Supermarket stores in the Area such as Sainsbury's on Union St.
What to pay: as little or as much as you like.
Tommy Field Market
Nestling in the heart of Oldham is the town’s much - loved Tommyfield Market, offering the very best of both worlds, with its spacious indoor modern market hall wich claims to be the largest permanent indoor market in England and its friendly, bustling outdoor market steeped in history, character and tradition It's name is derived from 'Tommy's Field' after Tommy Whittaker who was a pig breeder who rented the field from a farmer and established the market back in 1830.
Making a regular trip to Tommyfield is a must for bargain hunters! Tommyfield also used to be one of the largest open air markets in the North West until the council decided to start selling parts off and making some of it into a car park. Although it still is a highpoint among English markets…not just because of the impressive variety of goods on sale, but also as it’s literally the highest market in the country.
