Shrewsbury Market Hall

      
Shrewsbury Shropshire England
Description : 

Britain's Favourite Market 2018


Shrewsbury Market Hall won the crown of 'Britain's Favourite Market 2018'. It is a market that is loved with a passion by its customers thanks to its cool cafes, quality fresh produce, artisan food and drink, contemporary boutiques and art and design studios.

Wind the clock back a few years and, like many traditional markets around the UK, it was struggling to keep pace with a rapidly changing retail market. Its transformation, in such a short space of time, has been remarkable.

Great British Market Awards judges described Shrewsbury as an "exciting and inspirational market" that was "led by a successful concept developed around food".
Indeed you can find something delicious to eat from almost every continent. Champagne and oysters at a continental-style seafood bar, Thai and Indian street food, Spanish tapas and even Beijing dumplings in a bijou Chinese-style tea house.

And catering for a health conscious palate, the award-winning Bird's Nest café and new chef-run eateries Tom's Table and The Lunch Box serve artisan-style menus of freshly-made salads, bagels and delicious fusion dishes.

In 2017 Shrewsbury's first dedicated artisan gin bar, stocking 100 gins from Shropshire, Britain and around the world, opened up and helped to spearhead the success of raved about regular Saturday late night market openings that attract crowds of up to 1,700 people through the evening.

And bolstering the market's appeal as a must-visit destination are its independent lifestyle boutiques, designer-makers and artists selling original works of art and quality handcrafted home accessories, textiles and gifts.

Pampered pooches even have their own luxury boutique, selling items such as Harris Tweed collars and doggy bow ties

Add to the line-up of intriguing and lovely things to discover is an eclectic mix of vintage stalls, vinyl records, books, bikes and model trains. There is a traditional barbershop, strategy board game specialist and even a business dedicated to film processing and photographic equipment that is tapping into the resurgence of traditional film as a niche art form.

A medley of fabulous food and drink specialists cement the market's foodie credentials, from traditional butchers, wholefoods and a fantastic artisan deli to organic wines, artisan chocolates and even a producer of gourmet spice blends.

Through the annals of history markets have been about food producers and artisans bringing their wares to market for sale. This tradition continues at Shrewsbury Market Hall where growers, farmers and artisan producers grow or make most of what they sell.

Three of the market's greengrocers are farmers, growing the majority of their produce. Hopesay Glebe Farm is a certified small organic farm in South Shropshire, Maddocks Fruit and Veg runs a pesticide-free smallholding just up the road in Nesscliffe and Amess Brothers operate a smallholding in the Hope Valley.

The market's delicatessen Cook & Carve produces sausages and cured meats from local pork sources including the proprietor's own small herd.

The market is home to three traditional family butchers who source locally, including a rare breeds specialist. Fishmonger Barksworths Seafoods sells quality fresh fish sourced from small, Cornish, Welsh and Scottish family-owned day boats.

The Market Hall is open Tues to Sat (Thurs partial opening). Claremont Street, Shrewsbury SY1 1HQ. www.markethallshrewsbury.co.uk

Featured Attraction


Head for The Heights this year

Head for The Heights of Abraham, the award winning Hilltop Park situated in the spectacular Derwent Valley, just 9 miles from Chatsworth on the western edge of the Peak District National Park.

This "must see" Derbyshire jewel of an attraction is accessed by state of the art enclosed cable cars located on the banks of the River Derwent next to Matlock Bath railways station and the town's public car parks. Simply purchase your cable car ticket, and then sit back to enjoy Instagram-ready views of the geologically stunning valley as you climb to the summit.
TIP: You can save money by purchasing your tickets online in advance of your visit. Go to www.heightsofabraham.com for ticket prices and availability
Once you've purchased your cable car ticket, access to all the summit attractions is free, offering a great value-day-out whatever the weather. Head off to explore 60 acres of landscaped grounds, undercover interactive exhibitions, photography gallery, multi-media show caverns, adventure playgrounds, woodland walks and trails.

You can choose to dine in the Vista restaurant with its stunning views down the valley, or enjoy a snack in the café or out on the terrace with similar breath-taking views. Picnic areas can be found throughout the grounds, and during the school holidays you'll discover extra entertainment like the traditional Punch and Judy show (with a satisfying Heights of Abraham twist) for all the family to enjoy.
TIP: Dining times can be reserved in advance. This is recommended especially during the busiest times of the year. Phone 01629 582365 to make a reservation or pre-order the popular afternoon tea package.
Most visitors are surprised to learn that the Heights is in fact the Derbyshire's oldest tourist attraction. The cable car system has carried millions of visitors to the summit over the last thirty five years, yet it remains one of the latest chapters in the fascinating story of the Heights of Abraham. The Heights first opened as a Pleasure Ground in 1780 when visitors would make the climb from the valley floor on foot to witness some of the finest views across the surrounding area. Almost two and a half centuries later you are still able to wander around the estate with its zigzag paths and pleasant woodland trails. It is easy to understand why the area proved inspirational to the Romantic movement of the period.

As long ago as Roman times, Lead deposits may have been found in the area but it took another 1000 years before Lead mining was officially recorded on site. These impressive mines were active for over 400 years and left behind a legacy of passageways and awe-inspiring caverns. Today, thanks to all that hard work you can follow in the miners' footsteps down the passageways they created, going deep underground into the Heights' famous Show Caverns. From the glow of a single miner's candle to the whole cavern being awash with colour-changing lights, the Great Masson Cavern tour is one of the talking points of a visit to this Hilltop Park. Here, where the Equator was once situated millions of years ago, you can learn all about the rocks, minerals and underground formation of the Peak District. Equally, a visit to the Great Rutland Cavern is well worthwhile. First opened to the public over 200 years ago in 1810, you can experience a day in the life of the very miners who made your trip possible.

Those of an inquisitive mind should make sure they visit The Long View exhibition to see and hear the 230 year story about why the estate has been a favourite place to visit for many generations. On the upper floor the Fossil Factory brings to life fun and interesting facts about rocks, fossils and the formation of the Peak District. Tinker's Shaft SSSI is a spectacular location with a new viewing platform, high above the Derwent Valley and near the exit from the Great Masson Cavern. Interpretative panels provide information on the importance of the site, the natural history, the geology and the labyrinth of lead mines below Tinker's Shaft... directly beneath your feet!

The Heath and Heaven Gallery is a delightful pictorial journey through the Peak District from north to south and shot from the air on a single summer's day. Next to this you will find Through the Lens, a 12 minute film of the Great Masson guided tour, ideal for those who cannot, or do not wish to go underground during their visit.

If you're heading into Derbyshire or the Peak District, don't miss the opportunity to head for the Heights this year and tick this one off your bucket list. The cable car is just the start of a fascinating, relaxing and fun day out for everyone.
