This month’s town council meeting heard that under the management of the old district council in 2009, the weekly market was making a profit of £12,500 a year.
It is now losing money for Durham County Council, which took over when the district council was axed.
Durham County Council is now planning to give up responsibility for the town market.

The town council has been considering a bid but they say the offer on the table is unworkable.
