SERVING THE NATION’S TRADERS SINCE 1922


A brand new, ultra-modern indoor market in a North Lincolnshire town will open its doors to its first customer on Friday March 22 at 8am. North Lincolnshire Council


has invested £4m to create the new St John’s Market in the heart of Scunthorpe town centre, providing a new home for traders and bringing the town’s vacant former BHS store back into use. The council revealed recently that it has reserved eight stalls as business incu- bators, offering fledging and start-up businesses a unique opportunity to join 70 other established, independent retailers in their new venue. Though situated in a modern


setting, the market will offer visitors a celebration of retail heritage from Scunthorpe and the wider Lincolnshire region, with a variety of stalls selling locally sourced goods including fashion, cosmetics, jewellery, accessories, hardware and music. Fresh produce will be


available from butchers, gr e e n gro c e r s a n d fishmongers, offering a unique experience for visitors to the town centre, six days a week from 8am to 5pm. A new concept which has


also been revealed for the market is The Food Court. Located on the first floor,


with a large communal area for eating, drinking and socialising, a wide range of foods will be on offer including hot and cold sandwiches, Indian street food, burgers, jacket potatoes, crepes, hot puddings and sweets & cakes. A licensed bar will be serving


a selection of modern drinks including craft ales, cocktails and traditional beverages. The Food Court will operate


six days a week and opening hours will be extended into the evening. Victor ia Wil lerton of


Victoria’s Sponges, one of the new stallholders set to ply their trade at St John’s Market, said: “We are delighted to be part of this new venture for the town. Very exciting, and a brilliant idea for local small businesses. We are very eager to start trading in the St Johns Market.” The vision for the new facility


is a modern, sustainable market that is fit for purpose, offering local, high quality products, with specialist themes that improve the


ISSN 2057–6781 Scunthorpe’s old indoor market


customer offer and promote prosperity in the town centre. Cllr Rob Waltham, Leader


of North Lincolnshire Council, said: “St John’s Market is a key investment in Scunthorpe town centre and forms part of wider regeneration plans to transform the area. “It shows our commitment


to improving the town centre, bringing in more investment and driving economic growth. “The new market is a


modern space which meets the needs of the traders and customers. There will be a huge range of high-quality products on offer. It is fantastic to see so many traders already signed up, both existing and new.

A digital image of how the Food Court at the new market will look


such a prominent location, it will attract more people to see what their local market has to offer. It will be a completely different shopping experience for visitors. “The Food Court is a huge


part of St John’s Market and will be a real destination for shoppers and visitors. It will become a central part of the development, creating a place and an experience where people can eat and drink but also meet friends and family. “The Food Court will be


open on evenings so visitors to the cinema, or people finishing work in town, can grab a bite to eat or have a drink. It will become a destination in itself, with people coming into the town


centre to sample the variety of food and drink on offer. “Visitors are guaranteed


a unique experience which you’d normally expect in cities across the country.” Although there was some


controversy over the relocation of the market away from its current Market Hill site, North Lincolnshire Council have said the new facility will be home to 70 established, independent retailers, some of whom will have moved from the old indoor market. Free Wi-Fi will be available


in the new market and free public toilets, which will replace the existing public facilities at the bottom of the town’s high street. Traders who set up a


business at St John’s Market will also be eligible to receive free business advice and support from the council. Construction work on the


new market is progressing well, ready for the March opening, and as previously reported in Market Trader, stall units are being erected using British Steel from the Scunthorpe plant.
