Preston Markets has undergoing a major redevelopment that will result in the creation of a market to be proud of.
Centred on a brand new Market Hall, Preston Market will retain the best of what we've got now and bring in a range of new exciting product lines to become the place to shop at the heart of the city centre's retail offer.
It will continue as the place for Prestonians to buy quality products at competitive prices whilst becoming a destination for visitors from across the region.

Details of remaining stalls in the Market Hall and available units in the Box Market can be found on the Council's Property page or under the related pages section of this page.
The new Outdoor Market has now moved back to its permanent home under the 1875 Market Canopy. New granite paving, improved lighting as well as bespoke tables designed specifically for traders have been provided along with Preston Markets branded umbrellas giving an extra layer of weather protection. Stalls are currently available at the top of the market near the Lancaster road end next to the brand new market hall. There will also be a small number of stalls available under the Fish Market canopy next to the brand new Box Market from mid February 2018.
If you would like to trade find out more details on our Outdoor Market page.
The new Market Hall is a contemporary glass, steel and timber structure celebrating the heritage asset whilst vastly improving the opportunity for traders to operate in a more prominent location with significantly improved visibility, permeability and accessibility.
The new Market Hall will be anchored by a strong food offer in the form of butchers, fishmongers, greengrocers and dairy produce supplemented by ready-to-eat food such as sandwich stalls and ethnic food. Around three quarters of the new market hall will be allocated to food stalls, with the remainder potentially available to an interesting mix of non-food stalls.
The long term success and sustainability of the market as a whole will depend on the collective
offer. The new markets will reflect the changing face of retailing with an emphasis on variety,
uniqueness and a reflection of the broad spectrum of customers we want to see in the market.
