Greenhouse Books

Originally set up in Cheadle Village, with a sideline in damn fine coffee and homemade vegan cakes, Greenhouse Books moved in the back end of 2023 and can now be found in trendy Stockport Underbanks. The larger premises allow for author readings and artist talks – think along the lines of spoken word by members of Young Identity (where bookseller Jonathan cut his performance teeth) and writers from sister business Didsbury-based Confingo Publishing.

Oh, and there’s books! With both pre-loved product and hot-off-the-press titles, Jonny and the team curate some great “local” displays, and graphic novels and comics also line the creaking shelves. You’ll find a range of reading material, both brand-new and secondhand – including a selection of comics and graphic novels, books of almost every genre and niche interest, and a great local authors and publishers section. They also sell tomes via their website, so if you can’t pop in, pop online.

Greenhouse is the epitome of independent: cosy, homely and welcoming, and has fresh coffee and homemade cakes to nibble on while you get stuck into your next absorbing read. You’ll also catch them at small publishers fairs and markets in and around Manchester, so keep an eye on their socials for dates of those.
