The future of Rochdale market was discussed at a meeting of around 60 stall holders.
The market has been taken back under council control following the sale of the Exchange Shopping Centre and Council leader Colin Lambert told traders that no decisions on the market’s future have been made as yet.
The range of issues discussed at the meeting included the importance of being near public transport links and affordable rent, the need to have lockable units and being close to other town centre attractions.
Steve Harrison, who runs the Simply Flowers stall, said: “Markets can only survive if they are attached to higher footfall places like shopping centres. The shops around the market bring customers onto our stalls and we push custom their way too. We complement each other.”
