As some of you may know, work has already begun for the re-development of Warrington Market 2016 and onwards.
The original market will still remain open during the course of the construction.
Warrington Market Traders, with help from our very own photographers at Foto Crazy, are aiming keep everyone updated on weekly basis, with photographs to show what has been taking place on the construction site. The site is set to be the temporary market which will be ready in Spring 2017, for the Warrington market stall holders to move into, whilst the demolition of the current Warrington Market takes place.
Eventually a new permanent market will be constructed using the old Boots building and lots of exciting developments are planned for this area, including a cinema and restaurants by 2019.
In the early stages of the re-development, the workers started out on a cold February morning, with heavy machinery being used, preparing for construction on the temporary market. The area has been flattened and fenced off ready for building to commence.

There is much speculation regarding the future of Warrington Market, but what is actually going on?
Rumours are rife about the market closing down, moving and getting bulldozed.
What we as traders are told, the market will never actually be closed throughout all the works being carried out!
A temporary market will be built over the next 18-24 months, the site will be on or around the old Time Square site. Traders will move into this temporary market causing minimum disruption to shoppers. Once all traders have gradually moved across to the temporary building, the old (current) market will be knocked down and a new market erected incorporating the old Boots building plus some extra space at the back of it. Once the sparkly new market is in place, traders will move from the temporary market across to the new premises, again causing minimum disruption to shoppers in the town.
So, as you see, Warrington Market will NOT be closing!
During the whole process, shoppers will still be able to enjoy our town’s traditional shopping centre and support local businesses over the large corporates.
Thank you for your support and please continue to enjoy our market.
