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.

  • The old market was better , lot of empty stalls . Car parking a nightmare.
  • Modern, conveniently located under the shopping mall via the escalator and easy access from a pedestrianised street and bus station and only two minutes walk from the train station. It may be small but an improvement than the dreary and dismal old market. Staff are friendly and there is a good choice of stuff on offer with a food court and cafes.
  • The old market was better and cheaper. The traders have been priced out by the greedy council.
