Preston’s outdoor Lancashire Market is to return once more this Easter.

Recently judged as the second-best local market in the UK the stalls take over Friargate during the Easter weekend.

Preston Business Improvement District, who organise the market, said they narrowly missed out on top spot in the National Association of British Market Authorities awards.

Andrea Mellon, restaurateur and member of the BID Committee BID said: “We’re delighted that the Lancashire Market, an inception of the BID back in 2010, has been officially recognised by leading experts.

“The Lancashire Market is a hugely popular event that has seen tens of thousands of people visit the event and moreover, our great city centre.

“Preston has a long and historical connection with markets and as such, it’s vital that all quarters of the community, from business to residents alike, continue to support such vital community hubs.”
