Stallholders at the historic Barnet Market have welcomed a major refurbishment as “a fresh start”.
The new owners of the St Albans Road site, the William Pears Group, has spent thousands of pounds renovating the dilapidated former cattle market since they took over earlier this year.
The market, which can be traced back more than 600 years, reopened for the first time this week after a month-long closure.
Customers on Saturday were greeted with new stalls, fresh Tarmac and new railings, which give the market what one stallholder described as “a badly-needed lighter and brighter feel”.
Andy Gardiner, who has run his fruit and vegetable stall for 25 years, said: “This has always been a community market and we’ve always been supported by the community, but we want it to become the hub it once was.
“It’s a teething process but with the changes that have been brought in, there is a chance of that.”
