Bolton Market will get a £4.5m refurbishment if proposals get final approval from the council.
The plans include a new outdoor market, major improvements to the Eastern Hall and an improved entrance, as well as structural repairs.
Bolton Council executives will make a final decision on the Ashburner Street market proposals on 5 December.
The council leader, Councillor Cliff Morris, said: “[We] need to safeguard this vital asset for the future.”
The project, if it gets the go-ahead, will coincide with regeneration work around the market, including a new transport interchange due for completion in 2014.
Traders were briefed on the refurbishment plans on Tuesday.
