Chester Market car park lift

Chester market lift is currently closed for essential repair works. Installation of a new lift commenced on 8 March and work is expected to take until early May to complete.

There is an alternative lift which takes you into The Forum reception area. Due to the buildings opening times this lift will only be in use from Monday to Friday 8am to 5pm. Signage can be found in the car park advising where the other lift can be located until the new lift is in use and directing customers to the alternative exit routes. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Antique, collectables and vintage fayres

By popular demand Chester Market has introduced a weekly Antique, Collectables and Vintage event every Tuesday offering customers more choice and traders, opportunities to sell. Call Chester Market if you're interested in a stall.

Our traders pride themselves not only on the quality of their produce but on their expertise, acquired in many cases from generations of trading - something that that you are unlikely to find in your average supermarket chain.
