The Produce Hall
This 19th-century market building became a buzzy food hall and bar in 2019 as part of Stockport’s transformation from ‘crap town’ to ‘decent place to live and hangout’.
They’ve kept many of the original architectural features but ditched the sweet stalls and egg sellers in favour of a fantastic rosta of restaurants and street food traders. Head here for lunch or dinner and you’ll find everything from Caribbean soul food to full-on Sunday roasts to big, sloppy slices of stone-baked pizza.
Highlights include the excellent Cambodian restaurant Kambuja which does beautiful curries, bahn mi, and small plates for snacking, and the lean and green Mediterannean dishes from Greek vendor Odysea.
The Produce Hall holds its own as a bar too (though you’d be daft not to eat while you’re here). Choose from a solid range of craft beers, ales, and ciders, or try one of their signature cocktails. With a large open space for seating, and a mezzanine bar overlooking the hall, it’s a popular spot for meet-ups at the weekends.
