Preston's brand new Market Hall is now officially open having undergone an exciting transformation
The glass and timber clad steel structure of the new market hall provides a modern and contemporary shopping experience for customers whilst the Box Market - which will open in the coming weeks - takes inspiration from markets in London offering something a little different not seen anywhere else in the northwest.
Welcoming traders old and new, you can buy traditional food and products from familiar faces and also enjoy new and exciting product lines.
The Outdoor and Secondhand Markets have also been revamped with new paving, tables and umbrellas. Both markets are located under the fantastic 1875 and Fish Market canopies which were restored to their former glories in 2016 as part of the markets transformation.
