The Assembly Rooms market in Lancaster has closed for three weeks to allow for refurbishment works to take place.
The market is open from Tuesday to Saturday and home to a mix of small stalls selling everything from vintage fashion to books, comics, miniatures and collectables.
Until March 26, Lancaster Council, as owner of the building, will be carrying out a program of repairs.
Works will focus on repairing and painting the ceiling and revamping the vacant stalls for new traders.
During the closure one of its traders, First Age Comics, will still be trading from The Storey on Meeting House Lane.
After refurbishment work has taken place there will be a limited amount of space available for new traders and the council is keen to hear from people who are interested in running a vintage stall to take up the space.
Rates start from just £16 a week so if you’re interested contact Market Manager, Tracey Bruce,on 01524 414251 or email firstname.lastname@example.org
Coun Jon Barry, cabinet member with responsibility for markets, said: “The Assembly Rooms is one of the city’s hidden gems and an essential part of what makes Lancaster special.
“So it is right that Lancaster City Council invests in maintaining this unique building for the benefit of both its customers and traders.”
