The final day of Flint’s historic market will be on Friday September 14 Flintshire County Council has announced.
Councillors voted in favour of closing the market back in March due to the small numbers of traders attending and a decline in customers.
A charter to hold a market in Flint was first made in 1278.
The market was relaunched following a move from its traditional location on Market Square, it also increased in size from one to over thirty stalls.
However, after an initial boost in the number of customers, stall holders struggled to sustain reasonable levels of trade and numbers dwindled.
Despite a series of promotional campaigns to increase awareness, enthusiasm for the market has remained lukewarm.
