The Covered Market will be opening into the evening every Thursday, Friday and Saturday.
Thank you to everyone who took part in the survey we launched last year asking what people felt about the idea of extending the Covered Market’s opening hours into the evening. The response was huge and the results were overwhelmingly in favour.
So here we are! This exciting trial will last for a year. During this time we’ll be seeing how this works for you and for the market’s traders. See below for the list of current businesses opening from the start. We hope many more will follow
The market itself is now open until 11 pm every Thursday, Friday, and Saturday. Our independent traders operate their own opening times so do bear in mind that some traders may open later than others. You can find out how late individual traders will be opening by visiting individual trader pages, by going to our all traders page.
If you see a closed entrance before 11 pm on between Thursdays to Sundays, don’t give up! The four entrances remaining open are at either end of Avenues 1 and 3, on both Market Street and High Street. To see where Avenues 1 and 3 are, check out our market map that sits at the end of the All Traders page here or clicking on the individual trader names below.
