All of the stalls on Stockton’s 700 year old market have had a make-over.
As part of the town’s on-going regeneration they have each been transformed with a new blue and white striped canopy.
Stockton Council’s Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Transport, Councillor Mike Smith, said: “Stockton’s strong markets heritage is one of its unique features and that’s why we are working hard to support it as part of the on-going regeneration.
“The dedicated space created for stall holders at the southern end of the High Street is helping shoppers make their way between the stalls more easily and these new canopies will further improve the shopping experience by enhancing the look and feel of the market.
“Meanwhile we are continuing to develop what our markets offer visitors and shoppers through both the traditional market and our extensive programme of specialist markets.
“The town’s market traders have been incredibly patient while the works have been taking place and I would like to thank them for that and their on-going support. Once the physical regeneration is complete we will continue to work with them to make sure Stockton’s market continues to flourish in the future months and years.”
Stockton Market takes place on Wednesdays and Saturdays with a smaller market on a Friday.
A busy programme of specialist markets is continuing to complement what the traditional market has to offer.
