Toffee shops ? Bread stalls ? What next ? , John's watch repair cabin ? or the guy that flogs second hand CD's? Blinking blimey Mick, promise me you'll buck up, get on that futuristic Raleigh of yours and get some proper photos taken. Like the laughing tree for example.

Regards. Ozy.

Good photo of the market. In Wigan I thought it would be 'th'oven dooer. Lots of good memories, thanks Mick.


Comment by Sue on 28th December 2016 at 06:25
For me the greatest market stall of all is the one that sells creamy Lancashire cheese, I haven't lived or visited Wigan for many years now but that cheese is simply the best !


Comment by Garry on 28th December 2016 at 10:46
I agree with Ozy, Mick.
I think we've seen and been to loads of shops and stall over the festive holidays period. Take some photos of ice and fog for a change.


Comment by Carol and George Waterhouse on 28th December 2016 at 11:17
It looks a bit different than when we had that stall 11 years ago selling chickens and cooked meats.G and C Waterhouse Cooked meats and Barbecued Chickens.
Nice picture it brought back a lot of happy memories .


Comment by Mick on 28th December 2016 at 12:18
Carol I used to enjoy eating your chickens, now I have to make do with the ones in Costco.


Comment by DTease on 28th December 2016 at 14:03
Don't worry Ozy, there isn't that many stalls left to photograph in the Market Hall.


Comment by carol young on 28th December 2016 at 14:25
I always check who serves me at the oven door since I saw the bloke behind the counter with his finger up his nose I make sure its not him


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 28th December 2016 at 16:16
I think Ken's correct actually. Being as the place is in Wigan, it should should really have been called ' Th'oven Dooer '. It's only right after all. I was in a DIY shop in the north of Scotland recently, the name outside the shop, in large letters read ' DAE IT YERSEL'. Just thought I'd throw that one in for a bonus.


Comment by Jonno on 28th December 2016 at 16:35
Correct DTease.
Carol, the bloke was probably searching for an alternative bird other than chicken to put on their sub rolls.


Comment by Pat McC on 28th December 2016 at 16:50
You're right about the cheese Sue, do you remember The Cheese Cabin and the two gentlemen who served there? Theyknew everything there was to know about cheeses!

I too left Wigan some years ago to return to my native Wales, but have lovely memories of Wigan Market - Sutcliffes Tripe Stall, Casinellis, Redman's (where I once asked for a pound of backless bacon, instead of rindless bacon - newly-married and knew next to nothing about meats etc). Happy days.


Comment by Garry on 28th December 2016 at 17:02
Carol really!!!lol


Comment by Terry on 28th December 2016 at 18:14
I understood that photography inside
the Market Hall was forbid I saw the security man stop someone who was snap taking.


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 28th December 2016 at 19:02
Jonno, that's gross mate, really gross.......Nay, nay, and thrice nay, it's exceedingly gross......... I have to admit however that it made me laugh. Right,... that's me,.... I'm off to make myself a backless bacon butty.


Comment by irene roberts on 28th December 2016 at 19:18
I agree with Sue about Creamy Lancashire Cheese from The Cheese Cabin. I have bought Creamy Lancashire from many places, but none has ever matched the one sold in The Cheese Cabin. It is absolutely delicious.


Comment by Ellen on 28th December 2016 at 19:28
Sue and Pat,you're so right about Lancashire cheese!...Gosh, I miss that sooo much! Just for the heck of it,I asked at a local shop if they ever had Lancashire cheese,and was met with a blank stare!--Yet they had Wensleydale, Stilton and other English cheeses!..Very disappointing, to say the least!


Comment by Sue on 28th December 2016 at 19:42
The creamy Lancashire cheese blended perfectly with the pickled onions sold in the outside market on Warburton thick sliced bread.
Delicious


Comment by . Ozymandias . on 28th December 2016 at 21:44
Sorry Sue, yellow card I'm afraid. Reason being, Warburton's bread comes from Bolton, which as we all know isn't in Wigan. I'm terribly sorry my dear, but this is Wigan World, not Bolton World, or even Howfen World. Don't blame me, I don't make the rules. Now if you'd said Rathbones, well, that would have been a different matter entirely.

Regards. Ozy.

Sounds like Th'Oven Door will soon be closing due to a sharp decline in custom!!
