The competition to crown the top market in Britain is being run by the National Association of British Markets.

Mayor of Preston Councillor Veronica Afrin said: “It would be fantastic if Preston Market could win the Britain’s favourite market award, as it is such a prestigious award.

“The market is one of the city’s famous icons, and people can help make it Britain’s favourite.

“The market attracts thousands of customers every week and the combination of the different types of traders make it one of the most vibrant markets in the North West.

“It would be great for the traders and for Preston so I would encourage everyone to get voting.”

Voting is open until 31 December and you can vote online.

Preston’s market was opened in 1973, and the council is currently working on proposals for a multi-million pound revamp of the indoor and outdoor markets.
