Manchester Craft & Design Centre, Manchester

An award-winning centre with handmade items jewellery, ceramics, furniture and more

Awarded 'Best Independent Retailer' at the 2013 Manchester Tourism Awards, Manchester Craft & Design Centre boasts over 30 artists, designers and craft makers under one roof.

MCDC lies in the heart of the Northern Quarter, offering an impressive array of quality goods that you won't find on the high street – handmade, bespoke and personal. Jewellery, bags, ceramics and furniture make it the go-to place for gifts with that individual quality, and it's nice to be able to buy something you really love from the actual person who made it. Prices obviously vary but items are often nowhere near as expensive as you might think. Its very own Oak Street Café offers a menu with good stews, salads and cakes, as well as a decent coffee.

The building dates back to 1873 when it was a fish market, a beautiful piece of design itself, making it ideal for purpose to this day.

Nice selection of local, independent artists and designers in the middle of the Northern Quarter. It's a good spot if you're looking for something a bit different and are happy to pay for the quality.

Really cute independent shops and designers in here, its a bit small when it get busy and i get a little nervous Ill knock something precious off a shelf! But its great.
