The National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) has recognised Chester Market in its annual achievement awards.
Per the NABMA website, "NABMA has closely followed the planning and the journey of a historic and loved city centre market, steeped in history, to a vibrant and exciting new facility. The planning, build and transition were complex involving extensive consultation events to inform a new market vision and manifesto. The highest standards were set for traders, event organisers and staff to deliver the best market possible. The vision driving the new market was to be a ‘modern traditional market’ with sustainability, creativity, and inclusivity."
Councillor Nathan Pardoe, Cabinet Member for Inclusive Economy, Regeneration and Digital Transformation, said: “The success of Chester Market is made possible by its fantastic traders and the commitment of the Council to deliver its vision for Chester Northgate.
“Congratulations to the Chester Market team, this award is very well deserved and recognises all their hard work and strong partnership with the traders. The team have established what is now acknowledged as the country’s benchmark for city centre markets.”
