Sefton Council is leading the transformation of Southport Market, on the corner of King Street and Market Street, into an exciting new food, drink and events hub.
Once complete Southport Market will have 11 food and drink units serving up mouth-watering food, supported by fresh produce from Blackhursts Butchers and flexible event and market space.
The new-look Southport Market is on course to open its doors this summer, thanks to the hard work of Sefton Council and partners including builders Medlock and Architect & Interior designers DV8 Design, which specialises in hospitality and commercial transformations.
The building is undergoing its £1.4million redevelopment thanks to £900,000 funding through Southport Town Deal and £500,000 through the Liverpool City Region Combined Authority.
Family-run Blackhurst Butchers, which has been in the market for nearly 50 years, recently moved to their new unit at the front of the market.
They will be joined by:
Pitamu (finest Greek street food)
600 Degrees (wood-fired speciality pizza)
Allotment (big American burgers and loaded fries)
Hectors Mexicana (the freshest Mexican street food)
Down and Oot (sizzling Canadian premium steaks and poutine)
King St. Bakery (iconic Portuguese tarts from Lisbon, plus tasty treats from across the UK)
Messy Moments (freshly-made crêpes or waffles with a variety of toppings)
Birkdale Pie & Mash (delicious home-made pies with a variety of fresh fillings)
