This is the last weekend for people to enjoy delicious meals at Southport Market before it heads into a two-week January shutdown. 

The Market is once again closing for a fortnight for traders to enjoy some rest after a busy Christmas period and for any maintenance work needed to be carried out. 

A Southport Market spokesperson said: “We will be closing our doors from Monday, 8th January 2024 and reopening on Wednesday, 24th January 2024.

“Also Blackhurst Butchers will be closing between 5th January and 23rd oJanuary 2024!

“Make sure to pop by this week before we shut for some down time.” 

There are plans this year by Sefton Council to give a fresh new look to the Southport Market Quarter, as the council pedestrianises Market Street and makes King Street one-way. 

The aim is to give more space for local businesses to grow, and to attract more shoppers and visitors to the area. 

Southport Market celebrated its second birthday in July last year Southport Market after another record breaking year of success.

Nearly half a million meals and drinks were served to thousands of people who visited the popular food market in Southport town centre in the preceding twelve months.

An astounding 422,300 dishes, including 30,000 burgers and 45,000 pizzas, were sold at the King Street venue as staff and traders worked tirelessly to keep up with demand.

Last year saw the addition of Southport Market’s Extravaganza space hosting a huge array of private hire events as well as sell-out experiences and shows.
