The people of Chesterfield are being urged to vote for the town’s market as the best in the nation.

The famous market is part of an online competition hosted by the National Association of British Market Authorities. The newly refurbished market hall will also be entered into the best small market category of the awards.

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council’s executive member for culture, leisure and tourism called the market “the lifeblood of the town.”

She added: “The traditional market square is an iconic part of the town and I’d encourage all our residents and visitors to the town to vote for Chesterfield.

“We have had some excellent events on the market during the year which have brought whole families out not to mention the reopening of our Victorian Market Hall after it’s refurbishment - truly offering something for everyone.”

Stall owners from the market hall are backing the market to win the award, describing it as having a great old fashioned feel with traditional services and values.Dawn Glease, of New Dawn in the market hall, described the newly renovated market hall as ultramodern and unique.

She said: “The new refurbishment has brought the market hall up to date. It is clean and is ideally located in the town centre. It really compliments the outdoor market.

“The products on the stalls here are good value. The best part about the market though is definitely it’s traditional values and service.”
