Ashton Market Preview

Behind the scenes

The photographs on this page offer you a look behind the scenes in the re-built Market Hall!

The Market Hall was originally all on one level, but the opportunity has been taken to re-design the building to make the best use of the space. In addition to the ground floor sales area, there is a new basement which houses all the services along with facilities for the market traders. This includes a large room for sorting waste for recycling. There is a rest room for traders along with additional storage facilities.

There is a new mezzanine level running around two sides of the building which houses the market offices, a new meeting room overlooking the market sales floor and a series of small offices that will provide accommodation for new start-up businesses.
