Behind the Scenes at the new Chester Market
As part of the NABMA professional development programme, we are delighted to accept an invitation from Cheshire West and Chester Council for a visit to the new Chester Market that opened its doors in November. In the first month of trading over 300,000 visits were made and the team expect to reach 1 million customers in the week leading up to Easter.
With a market tradition stretching back to 1159, this is an opportunity for NABMA members to visit a new market that has now begun an exciting new chapter in its history with a move to a new purpose-built market hall at the heart of the Northgate development.

This is an ideal opportunity for market managers, and their team members, to go behind the scenes of a major redevelopment and also understand the impact the market has on local regeneration. The market is the cornerstone of Chester’s £72 million Northgate development, the biggest development in Chester for decades.
NABMA is grateful to Cheshire West and Chester Council for this kind invitation and hospitality. Numbers will be strictly limited so if you book, and then find you cannot attend, then please provide us with early notice.
Details on meeting point etc will be provided closer to the event.
