The project, which saw phase one of redevelopment works in the main market hall commence in May 2016 was completed at the end of November, in time for the crucial festive trading period.
Phase two, which involves the construction of brand new trading units, is now underway with retailers expected to be in their new stalls over the coming weeks. The creation of a new mezzanine upper floor is also almost complete.
The people of Scarborough have been shopping for food and produce at the town’s Tuscan-style indoor market since 1853, in St Helen’s Square, where products ranging from fresh fruit and vegetables, meats, homemade pies and freshly baked bread readily available.
Stuart Leslie, divisional director at Esh, said: “The redevelopment of Scarborough’s historic market is a fantastic project and an important one to the future of the town’s long-term vision.
"It’s a significant redevelopment and once fully complete will not only provide a major economic boost to the Town but also help it cement its place, not only as a stop-off for fresh food but also as a great destination for tourists and locals all year round.
