Meet the trader – The Market Cafe


Each week, we’ll introduce you to one of Knutsford Market Hall’s traders.

This week it’s the turn of Ollie and Steph of The Market Cafe.


There has been a market at the cafe since it opened back in 1964, with Ollie and Steph Chadwick having taken up the reins since 2017.

The cafe offers a lovely, friendly environment whether you are kick-starting your day with a ‘coffee to go’ or you want to enjoy a leisurely lunch or afternoon tea.

The menu changes with the seasons and offers a variety of homemade soups, paninis and wraps as well as a legendary ‘Full English’.

The cafe’s friendly team is happy to take pre-orders to collect, or they will deliver direct to you.

The apple cakes, chocolate chip cookies and homemade fudge are particular favourites!

Both Ollie and Steph have catering backgrounds, and jumped at the opportunity to take on ownership of the cafe in the summer of 2017.

Steph, although the market’s youngest trader, has 10 years of catering hospitality under her belt – including supervising a hotel at the age of 21.
