Refresh for Northampton Market

Following a consultation with traders and NABMA, Northampton Market is getting an overhaul to brighten the market and make it a more attractive environment for traders and shoppers.

The work began last month and is due to be completed mid-October. It will include widening the east aisle of the market and replacing the current stall coverings, which should open up the centre of the market. The works have taken place on non-market days, to cause as little disruption as possible.

Cllr Phil Larratt, Deputy Leader of the Council, said: “We’re really proud of our town’s market, which is why we are investing in improvements to make it an attractive environment to trade and shop in.

“We consulted with traders before the works began to enable them to input their ideas, and to ensure that anyone being relocated as part of the works is happy with the position of their stall within the new market design.

“We look forward to unveiling a brighter and more spacious market square in weeks to come.”
