Winchester’s High Street market has come under more criticism for its impact on city retailers.
Traders raised concerns over the markets at the annual general meeting of Winchester Business Improvement District.
The market moved from Middle Brook Street to the High Street last summer and has helped increase footfall in the city.
But Stuart Simmons, owner of jewellers All That Glitters, said: “From my point of view the markets sell things I do and I do not see what advantage there is in having the stalls.
“If there is money to be spent in the High Street then surely that money should be spent in shops in general.”
Mr Simmons also said the market restricted pedestrian space in the narrow High Street at peak times.
