Prestonians are passionately proud of their vibrant northern city and its diverse history. Preston Market is located at the heart of Preston City centre, just a two-minute stroll from the majestic Harris Museum and Art Gallery and a five-minute walk from the infamous Preston Bus Station, Preston Markets has a welcoming community of local, family run businesses.
Completed in 1875, the market canopy is famed for its elegant Victorian style, which was renovated in 2018, with the addition of a new Market Hall within. The award-winning structure was carefully designed with glass ceilings and wooden panelling to provide views up into the restored canopy. The renovations have brought the market into the 21st century while preserving its history and heritage.
Today at Preston Markets, you can find a fantastic array of fresh, local produce supplied daily by a range of amazing independent traders. From locally sourced cheeses and artisan meats to freshly caught fish and high-quality cooked meats. Gift options such as collectables, flowers, personalised and handmade products can be found alongside a greetings card and gift wrap stall.
Why not come for lunch? With a variety of independent cafés and food stalls you are spoiled for choice. From a charcuterie board to a famous Preston butter pie or a custom made hot or cold sandwich. Once you’ve eaten, enjoy a relaxing drink in the well-stocked, warm, and welcoming bar or take home some locally brewed ales.
