BROMSGROVE market has moved to a temporary new home while the High Street regeneration work takes place.

The market needed to move as High Street could not host stalls during the work, scheduled to be completed by mid-July.

It is now being located at the area fronting ASDA, near Market Street, and will potentially also be in Mill Lane.

The first market has been held for the first time at the new location today, (February 18), and will now be based there on market days; Tuesdays, Friday and Saturdays.

Councillor Rita Dent, ward member for the town centre, said: “The improvement works are really important but it is the council’s intention to continue to provide a market whilst they are taking place.

"We hope that as the works are gradually completed the traders can return to High Street before the final completion date, estimated at 22 weeks.”

Holding the market here is much better than having all the stalls in the High Street. There is much more space to move and see what is on offer and the High Steet itself is much less cramped and not so difficult to get around.

I often struggle to see which shops I need to get to when having to navigate all the stalls and the vehicles on the weekend.

It also seems to be a lot safer as you don't have the stall holders vans driving up and down to avoid.

I think it would be a good idea to consider keep holding it here in the future.
