Councillor Brian Rollo, cabinet member for environment said:

“The first birthday event celebrates the success of the traders and Preston Markets over the first year, welcoming customers and members of the public to enjoy it with us.
“It’s great to see the Markets evolving day to day, with businesses growing and also welcoming new traders. Footfall figures show a positive trend and with only a few units left available, it has been a very successful year for the new Market Hall.

“The first birthday event is another great opportunity to shop local and support independent businesses.”
