MARKET traders say they were forced out after being told to move their stall to “death corner”.
Roy and Debbie Gregson have quit Wakefield Market, having run a cafe there since it reopened on Union Street in 2008.
They claim they were asked to move to makeway for new traders under a market reshuffle.
Council chiefs told them to move to edge of the outdoor site, which the Gregsons said is exposed to rain and next to the bus station which puts customers off.
Mr Gregson, of Lofthouse, said: “This edge of the market is actually known as ‘death corner’. It is always the last bit to be filled.
“We have many regular customers and it is a social experience for a lot of them.
“But who is going to want to come and sit next to the entrance to the bus station?”
Mrs Gregson said she had traded on Wakefield’s old market for 18 years.
