A campaign has been launched to promote Preston Markets during the run up to the redevelopment of the new market hall and throughout the building works.

The main campaign message is that Preston Markets is open for business and will remain so throughout the redevelopment process. The current market hall will not close until the new Indoor Market is built, and open and every effort will be made to minimise disruption to the Outdoor Market and Car Boot and Flea Market during that time.

The campaign includes radio sponsorship, bus adverts with Preston Bus, new signage around the market and an ongoing digital campaign. The market team has also been out and about welcoming new and returning students from UCLan.

The first stage in the restoration of Preston’s historic Fish Market canopy was completed recently, with specialist investigation into the 90 year old structure. Full refurbishment of the smaller covered market will commence in the New Year and forms the first stage of the markets redevelopment.

Welcoming the campaign Councillor Peter Rankin, Leader of Preston City Council said:


“We want to ensure that all market customers are aware that our fantastic market is open and will be staying open throughout the process. It is important that everyone continues to support Preston Markets throughout this period of change and joins us and market traders at the new Market Hall once complete. Hopefully the campaign will also encourage new customers to the market as well.”
