A Market Hall, described as "on its knees" only 10 years ago, has been crowned 'Britain's Favourite Market 2018' after undergoing a radical transformation.

Shrewsbury Market Hall beat off competition from markets across the UK to win the title at The Great British Market Awards.

"Exciting and inspirational" was how judges described the market, which has "reinvigorated itself" in the last few years.

"Ten years ago stalls were vacant, many town residents didn't know the market existed and it was considered to be dull and uninspiring," said judges.

"Today it is full of exceptionally creative, vibrant and diverse businesses."

The Market Hall, which is now jointly run by Shropshire Council and Shrewsbury Town Council, was one of six UK finalists short-listed for the coveted title along with markets in Barrow in Furness, Cambridge, Leeds Kirkgate, Norwich and Skipton.

All finalists were short-listed in a public voting campaign that ran through October and November and attracted over 50,000 votes. The second round of the competition involved visits to each market by both judges and a mystery shopper.

The award was presented at the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) One Day conference in Birmingham, along with other categories in The Great British Market Awards.

NABMA Chief Executive, Hilary Paxman, who was one of the Judging panel members, said: "Over the last ten years Shrewsbury Market has reinvented itself, adapted and changed its offer, turning the business around using a distinctive food offer to build a local reputation.
"In the last three years footfall has risen by 40% and it has put on some fantastic events which have attracted a new audience of shoppers and is making the market hall the go-to place in this market town."
Facilities Manager for Shrewsbury Market Hall, Kate Gittins, said that, when she was appointed to the job 10 years ago, the market was only half full and on its knees.

"It was at rock bottom. It was dead and quite depressing. We turned it around and it has evolved with some significant turning points along the way, one of them being the arrival of a champagne bar."

The market now boasts various ward-winning eateries and street food offerings, a gin parlour and a diverse mix of contemporary and traditional stalls, ranging from fresh produce to gift and homeware boutiques and designer-makers.

The Market Hall has earned a reputation as a must-visit destination for some of the most creative lunch spots in town. And one Saturday every month - usually the first Saturday - the market also opens as a popular evening venue. Cafes, restaurants, bars and a selection of retail stalls open until 10pm.
Diners can enjoy Beijing dumplings in a Chinese tea house, champagne and oysters at a continental-style seafood bar, Spanish tapas or sizzling Thai and Indian street food.
The Birds's Nest Cafe, recently awarded the accolade of Shropshire's Best Coffee Shop, is renowned for its show-stopping cakes and artisan-inspired street dishes.
New to the market's food and drink scene is Gindifferent Bar, specialising in more than 50 craft gins from small distilleries in the UK and abroad. Gins can be savoured alongside artisan cheese and charcuterie platters, the ingredients for which are sourced from market delicatessen Cook And Carve.
The market has a dizzying array of fresh produce, reinforcing its foodie credentials. There are no fewer than four traditional butchers, including rare breed and poultry and game specialists. There are four fruit and veg sellers including Hopesay Glebe Farm which sells its own organic produce on Fridays and Saturdays.
Barkworths Seafoods has been supplying fresh fish to the people of Shrewsbury for over 100 years, sourcing from small family-owned inshore day boats in Cornwall, Wales and Scarborough.
Other notable food and drink attractions are Snapdragon Wholefoods, barbecue rub and spice blend specialist Black Box and independent wine merchant Iron & Rose which sells wines from small production vineyards that use traditional and natural methods of production.
Make time to explore the market's home and gift boutiques. Discover vintage finds, pre-loved books and unique handcrafts. Treat yourself to a one-off work of art.
You can even hire or buy a bicycle to explore more of Shrewsbury and the surrounding area. Supplier Urban Bikes provides sightseeing cycle route maps that weave through the town or fan out into the countryside.
