Preston’s new markets are not yet fully with traders, but there’s an update on it being filled.

The city’s Box Market, under the Fish Market, has regularly seen only a couple of stalls trading.

However Preston City Council says it expects to have both the new Market Hall and the Box Market at full capacity in the coming months.

Director for environment at the city council Adrian Phillips said: “The new Preston Markets have been a great success since they opened in February. With significant interest in the few remaining stalls we anticipate the Market Hall and Box Market to be at full capacity over the coming months.

“Lovingly Artisan bakery plan to open soon whilst The Curry Kitchen team, located next door to Crunchy Croutons, are finalising the design of their stall prior to fitting out.

“We are about to sign both a local pie specialist and a creperie selling savoury and sweet crepes. And discussions with a café who have an interesting offer are underway. An experienced fruit and veg trader will complete the line-up for the new Market Hall.”

It is understood that We Don’t Give a Fork has an interest in opening a new eatery in the Markets.

The Box Market is also due to see a number of new traders in the next few weeks.

Mr Phillips said: “Over on the Box Market Karen’s Vintage who has been successfully trading on our outdoor market for many years is soon to open next to Priest Town Brewing’s great range of bottled local ales.

“Jonah’s coffee for takeaway and sit-down hot drinks will be on site shortly and is due to be joined by a barber and a clock and watch repairer.”
