Preston Markets has more to offer this September with the expansion of two popular stalls, a brand-new clothes stall, and the addition of a monthly craft fair which is set to start soon.


Following the expansion and relocation of an original Preston Markets café, Brew + Bake, the prominent location has recently been filled by Nurcan’s cafe and ice cream shop.

Councillor Robert Boswell, Cabinet Member for Environment and Community, said: “I extend a warm welcome to our new traders. It is excellent to see so many positive developments at Preston Markets.

Stall expansions are particularly exciting as it’s wonderful that Preston Markets is able to encourage our current traders to flourish. I wish them all every success.”

Mark Beck, Preston Markets Manager, said: “I am really looking forward to the Preston Market Craft Fair.

“It’s an exciting opportunity for residents and visitors who I’m sure will come down and support all the stall holders. Managed by events team SPG Events, the model has already proved its success in a number of other locations.”
