Extra day of retail therapy for market shoppers

There’s now less than a week to go until Shrewsbury Market Hall open its doors for an extra day of shopping and feasting.

The award-winning market will be holding a rare Sunday opening on 16th October for shoppers to get a head start on their Christmas shopping. 

The Sunday Shopping Showcase will see a host of cosmopolitan cafes, artisan producers and traditional stalls open from 10am until 2.30pm.

Shoppers can browse a range of eclectic stalls from handmade jewellery, homewares, antiques, artisan bakers and chocolatiers as well as enjoy a leisurely lunch at a range of eateries from Mayuree's House of Yum, The Market Buffet or Moli Tea House, or a morning latte at the Bird’s Nest Café, followed by a sweet treat from Annie’s Bakery.

There are also a range of traditional fruit and veg stalls and family butchers – perfect for picking up those last-minute Sunday roast essentials.

Suzi Wilkinson, marketing & promotions manager for Shrewsbury Town Council said: “The Shopping Showcase is a rare opportunity to experience all the Market Hall has to offer on a leisurely Sunday. It’s a chance to sample some of the many fine eateries, as well as get a head start on your Christmas shopping – and with Sunday parking at just £1 all day on Shropshire Council car parks it’s a great opportunity to experience all the market has to offer.”

The Market Hall will also be laying on two late night shopping events in the run up to Christmas, opening until 9pm on 16th November as part of the wider Christmas Lights Switch-On event, and 14th December to coincide with Carols in the Square.
