Chester Market car park lift

Chester market lift is now open following essential repair works. Working in partnership with Cheshire West and Chester Council, a decision was taken to take the lift out of operation and proceed with the procurement of a new lift.

The replacement lift was procured and delivered by Qwest Services alongside their supply chain partner ENGIE. It now meets all current legislation including vandal resistant lift car, new landing lift doors, new lift operating mechanisms along with new LED lighting. This updated lift will provide users with a quick, smooth and reliable experience.

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.
