New weekly open-air markets aimed at boosting trade in Tipton were launching in the town today
The markets will be held in Princes End High Street and Owen Street under the pilot scheme, which aims to attract more shoppers to the town.
The market in Owen Street kicked off today while the pilot in Princes End will start on Friday.
Both markets run from 10am to 5pm on their respective days for the next three months.
Sandwell’s economy boss Councillor Derek Rowley approved the 12-week pilot for both the markets in Tipton and one in Union Street, Wednesbury, last month.
