The operator of Piries Place Market says he is ‘sad’ to be pulling his stalls out of the town after nearly a decade.
Gordon Roach was ‘surprised’ to learn that his craft stalls – which visit the area every Friday and Saturday – will be axed.
The market, which has been a haven for small independent businesses, has been in Piries Place since 2006.
It was started in a bid to drive footfall in Piries Place.
The last market will take place on Saturday June 21.
“It comes as a surprise,” said Mr Roach.
“We haven’t had any problems, it’s run smoothly and the trade has been there for some time. The public seem to like it.”
