Two Birmingham markets will remain in the city, the council has confirmed.
Traders at the Bullring indoor and outdoor markets feared their stalls would be moved out in light of plans to relocate the Wholesale Market.
But deputy council leader Ian Ward said the two markets will be renovated later this year and be the centrepiece of an extended city centre around the Bullring area.
Mr Ward said the improved markets will be a “big asset to the city”.
In March, news that the nearby Wholesale Market would relocate to either Washwood Heath or Witton in 2016 caused a wave of protest from shoppers and traders.
