INVESTMENT in Boston’s stall market is paying off as it bucks a national trend of decline and continues to thrive, the Borough Council claims.
And the new craft market is now all set to go from fortnightly to weekly.
The open aspect of the new-look Market Place has allowed for a new two-row street market layout, which has gone down well with stall holders.
In addition, recent investment by Boston Borough Council has included new lights for traders, new canopies and new stall boards to improve the appearance of the market. Further investment is being made to refurbish the metal stall frames themselves.
A number of previously vacant stalls are now occupied in a more compact and traditionally laid-out space.
Cllr Derek Richmond, the council’s portfolio holder for markets, said: “There have been some uninformed observations about there being fewer stalls now and a suggestion that the council has turned business away.
