Northampton Market will open for business on the Commercial Street carpark on Tuesday, 31 January while its permanent home receives a multi-million-pound makeover.

Only a seven-minute walk from the Market Square, the temporary home for the Market in Commercial Street is connected to the St Peters Way carpark providing easy access and visibility for the Market.

When traders return to the Market Square, they will have 18 high-quality and bespoke fixed stalls which are larger and more structured, along with a number of pop-up stalls.

The Market Square revamp by West Northamptonshire Council (WNC) also includes an interactive water feature, seating, lighting, and improvement of the cobbled surfaces.

Cllr Daniel Lister, WNC's Cabinet Member for economic development, town centre regeneration and growth said: "What is about to happen in Northampton Market Square will give us a space the whole town will be proud to have at its centre.

"When people think of Northampton, we want then to think of a bustling square filled with sounds and smells of a vibrant market and this revamp will deliver that.

"But it's a big change and I am appealing to everyone, especially those who haven't been to the market for a while, get down to Commercial Street, see what they have to offer, enjoy their great produce and genuine service and support them through this transition."

Northampton Market is open Tuesday to Saturday throughout the year.
