A 768-year-old market that was due to close today has been saved at the last minute.
Rochdale Market has been run by the council for the last year and was going to shut because of a decline in business.
Instead, a stall holder has offered to oversee the outdoor part of the market and keep it running. But while some traders were breathing a sigh of relief, it wasn't good news for everyone.
