Explore Preston's sleek and stylish markets and discover some hidden gems...

Having undergone an exciting transformation, Preston's new Market Hall provides a modern shopping experience in its contemporary glass and timber-clad structure. Located under the fantastic 1875 Market canopy - restored to its former glory in 2016 as part of the markets' transformation - the Market Hall sits alongside the revamped Outdoor and Secondhand Markets.

The new Box Market, opposite the Market Hall, also offers a fresh shopping experience for the city. Taking inspiration from markets in London, the Box Market offers something different unlike anywhere else in the northwest.

Welcoming traders old and new, you can buy traditional food and products from familiar faces and also enjoy new and exciting product lines.
