Harden's says

Smithfield's Grade II Listed 1858 market has been refurbished and reimagined as a food hall by the same folk behind Altrincham Market; ten food and drink stalls serve up a range of interesting fare, and there are over 500 seats.

“A truly brilliant addition to the Manchester dining scene, Altrincham Market’s bigger, better sibling” arrives in “a beautifully converted market in Manchester’s Northern Quarter” (a former meat market, empty for decades), providing a “fantastic selection of street food vendors all under one roof”. “It’s a little pricey, but choose from any of a number of cuisine stalls, from Asian buns to fish ’n’ chips, washed down with good wines or Manchester’s own Blackjack craft beers”. It’s “always buzzing”.
