Markets in Oswestry have had a major revival in fortunes after moving stalls into the street.
The number of traders setting up their stalls at the town’s open air markets have been in decline.
But figures published this week show a numbers doubling at both the Wednesday and Saturday markets, the first increase for many years.
In line with markets across Britain stallholders numbers have plummeted from the 1970s and 80s when up to 100 traders would flock to the Wednesday market each week.
Last year numbers had dropped to an average of just 11 stalls.
But a report to the markets and car parks committee of Oswestry Town council says that on average this year 19 have attended with many weeks attracting more than 20 stalls.
