Blackburn Market, Blackburn

3.0
Blackburn Market is based in the heart of the Mall’s busy shopping centre and was named Best Indoor Market 2012 by the National Association of British Market Authorities.

Occupying the ground floor of the three storey centre in Church Street and Ainsworth Street, the contemporary market hall is modern, bright and spacious – yet it still retains a traditional market feel.

Open six days a week and with more than 120 stalls to browse through, the new Blackburn Market has changed the face of markets forever.

There is no market like it in the country. Connected by escalators and lifts to the department stores and famous high street names above, it has direct links to shopping centre footfall of 275,000 per week.

A wide range of stalls selling high quality, locally sourced fresh produce including fish, meat, game, fruit and vegetables. Many of the traders have been in the town for decades.

There is also a host of non food stalls selling everything you need under one roof including textiles, technology, electrical items, fashion-wear, mobile phones, cards and gifts.

New to the market is the food court with a wide range of places to eat and a shared seating area.

Parking for the market can be found on the Mall shopping centre where there are 1,300 spaces available.

Coach parties are also welcome.

  • Really excellent market, surprisingly very bright, clean and tidy for a market. Good for everything and good cafes. Definitely worth a visit. It's a new market but they've managed to give it that old fashioned look and feel.
  • To be fair : I loved the Old indoor/outdoor market Blackburn used to have. ♡ The New market does have great well maintained toilet facilities and a cash machine. The old butlers cafe has relocated here which is great. There are a couple of stalls which sell fish, meats, and fresh produce. Good old stockleys sweets is there to keep the children happy. A barbers, appliances stall. New/Used games stall which the guy is really friendly and helpful. Other stalls include clothes, ready meals(eat in or takeaway) and a cakes stall. It is lovely and clean and well maintained. Situated on ground level with easy access whether on Foot, with a Pram or Wheelchair. Access to the Mall shopping centre via lifts and escalator.
  • Staff are rude and obnoxious. Ordered a salad bowl, asked politely for a fork and was told my attitude stinks. Not impressed.
  • It's OK, hard work for older people, reminds me of a maize!!!
  • The best place in blackburn I know. My favourite place to shop n eat n chill.
