The Wellbeing Project at Bolton Market has been judged the best market innovation by the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA).
It beat competition from a scheme at Old Spitalfields Market, one of London’s historic markets, and a project operated by Market Place Europe at Belfast Christmas Market.
The Wellbeing Project sees participants attend a free six-week course at Bolton Market, in Ashburner Street, to improve their cookery skills, learn more about healthy eating, get physically active and learn how to reduce their weekly food bills.
It is a joint Bolton Council and NHS Bolton project, and is the latest of a series of health schemes following the installation of an inhouse cookery demonstration kitchen at the market in 2008.
Bolton Council leader Cllr Cliff Morris said: “This is another prestigious award that the council has won for promoting healthy eating.
“It is a real accolade for the work the markets team do with NHS Bolton in improving the overall wellbeing of residents and changing attitudes to food.”
