Having worked on a small fruit stall from a tender age this lady's great idea for a market later went on to become The Barrowlands and is still going strong to this day. The same great atmosphere pertains today with friendly, helpful and professional traders always on hand.
There are a great variety of stalls within the market ranging from hand made fabrics, plants and flowers and antique furniture. The market is open every weekend with Saturday being the most busy and popular for trading.
