Posted on - 12th February, 2018 - 8:00pm | Author - | Posted in - Business, Preston City Centre

The new Preston Market Hall opened this morning – and there simply wasn’t enough room in our bellies to try everything.


Hundreds turned up to see the new home for the traders old and new.

Below we have our pictures from today, captured by Paul Melling, of the traders on offer.

A number of traders are not pictured – including Cherry Pie, Momoz, and a number of others – but it should be noted that not all the traders are yet ready to open for business.

Redmans of Preston

Cooked meats and hot sandwiches are available from Redman’s of Preston.

They make the move over from the original market, they also sell jams and chutneys from their stand.

Brew + Bake

Completely new to the markets and potentially the first thing you’ll see as you go through the doors.

They sell freshly ground coffee, gourmet artisan sandwiches and home-baked cakes.

Crunchy Croutons

These guys are promising restaurant-quality soups on your lunch break (or otherwise).

Quite the achievement.

A real stalwart of Preston, expect it to become a favourite for many.

Lovingly Artisan

Not merely a specialist sourdough bakery, but one making their home in Preston for the very first time.

We tried some too, and it was great, but even better is the faith they’ve placed in our markets by coming here.


It wouldn’t be a market without a fruit and veg stand, and Superveg make the short trip from the old market.

High-quality fruit and vegetables – simple but effective.

Sugar Rush

Old school sweets make their home at Sugar Rush.

They also operate as a candy cart for hire for events, but if you just want to grab some while collecting your shopping, this is the place.

Mark William’s Fishmonger

And you need fish too, at any market. Mark Williams has been in the industry for over four decades and took over this business in 1981.

Most of it is sourced from the Cornish Coast and he also takes requests made in good time.
