I used to frequent both those indoor cafes when i worked at "Animal Magic", next to the old fish market. Russell has been at the cafe for a long time now

Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

I went into the market hall last Saturday (10April) to get some bird seed and the upstairs was open for something or other to do with a food demo. It was the day of the food fair. I didn't bother going up to see what it was all about though as I don't do stairs.

Not from what I've heard.

Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

As Cashy says, we were in the Market Hall and looking at it, it certainly looks like they are making a good job of it, and should look really smart once finished.

However although it will certainly make shopping there a more pleasurable experience, and hopefully for those working there too, will it ultimately bring more footfall into the Town...or indeed into the Market Hall itself, i really dont think it will, and if its also put some traders out of business because they cannot afford the new rents, has it been worth all the time and expense? No matter how nice it looks...if there's empty units in there, the gloss will soon wear off. ONly time will tell!


Best Regards - Taggy

Re: refurbished indoor market hall

It does look good.

Though traders seem sparce.

I know some have left, fed up of months of being shifted hither and thither.

Hopefully it will soon be worth going in to buy something, rather than just appreciating how nice it looks.

The market looks OK, but does need new traders. The main problem with inside market is cost, and rates look a bit better now, but there are some better deals on small empty shop in town.

Re: refurbished indoor market hall

Incidentally, Cllr. Britcliffe was wrong, when in his column in last weekend's Observer, he said the Market Hall was 'Queen Anne on the outside, and Mary-Ann inside.

The outside is actually a late Victorian mish-mash of Palladian and Rococo, and Mary-Ann inside.

not wrong confused, being a bit of a Mary Anne himself.

Re: Market Hall Refurbishment

Market Hall looking rather good now. Still a large open area as you walk in by front entrance door?? Maybe gonna use it for "events". The cafe at the front was "buzzing" - looked good when you walked in.
This photo taken 29th June 2010, from top end "butchers side of Market Hall" looking towards main front doors. Still some of the new stalls empty.
