The Moor Market was described by the Independent newspaper as the Borough Market of the north and a haven for food lovers. 

It is one of the UK's best indoor markets and home to over 90 independent traders, selling everything from fresh and artisan produce, daily essentials, technology, clothes and accessories, gifts and beauty. 

Crystal Peaks Market Place offers over 40 independent traders selling the latest fashions, gifts, entertainment, groceries and everyday essentials. This traditional Market Hall, located within the Crystal Peaks Shopping Centre, offers a bustling local shopping experience.
