The Second-Hand Market will be operating with an additional Thursday slot at Preston Markets.


The market hasn’t been held for two years and from Thursday 23rd June, it will be open once again to visitors.

Visitors will be able to look through a treasure trove of pieces on the antique stalls under the Victorian canopy and also look at vintage toys, and jewellery and find old favourites on vinyl.

There will be bric-a-brac to explore and discoveries of hidden gems. Traders will vary week to week, so there’s always something new to discover.

For many years, Preston’s Second Hand Market ran two days a week, on a Tuesday and a Thursday. After the pandemic, lockdowns and subsequent reduction in footfall, a decision was made to reduce the market to one day a week.

Now that lockdowns are over and life is beginning to return to a normal pace, a decision has been made to add the Thursday opening back to the Preston Market schedule.

If you would like to trade on the Second Hand Market, you can simply turn up on the day and call in to the Market Office which is located on Birley Street, between 6am and 9am. 

The fee to trade on a Thursday is set at £10 for a regular trader and £13 for a casual trader. This is slightly lower than the fees on a Tuesday, which is £15 and £12 respectively.

Councillor Robert Boswell, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community said:   “I warmly welcome the news that the Second-Hand Market is returning to Preston on a Thursday, in addition to the ongoing Tuesday slot.

“Since the markets have reopened, the increase in footfall figures is above the national average which demonstrates how valued Preston’s Markets and their traders are.”
