Preston Markets are undergoing an exciting transformation with a new market hall currently being built under the 1875 Market Canopy and an innovative Box Market under the Fish Market canopy.
The glass and timber clad steel structure of the new market hall will provide a modern and contemporary shopping experience for customers whilst the Box Market - which takes inspiration from markets in London - will offer something a little different not seen anywhere else in the northwest. Welcoming traders old and new, customers will still be able to buy traditional food and products from familiar faces and also enjoy new and exciting product lines.
The Outdoor and Secondhand Markets will also be revamped with new paving, tables and umbrellas all located under the fantastic 1875 and Fish Market canopies which were restored to their former glories last year as part of the markets transformation.
All current markets remain open whilst these works are completed with the new markets due to open early 2018.
