St George’s Hall to host new summer market

The first St George’s Hall Market is expected to feature over 80 of the best independent local businesses.

Sunday, June 16, Father’s Day, one of Liverpool’s most iconic buildings will transform into a bustling hub of activity as the Summer Market brings a variety of stallholders to the hall’s interior and exterior.

At an outdoor food area on the plateau, at the end of Lime Street Station, visitors can eat their way around the world. There will be Chinese food and a Polish barbeque, to mention just two options. There are also plenty of sweets, including cakes and crepes from some of the top chocolate makers.

Inside, the food and drink offer continues, with a fizz bar and 60 other artists, makers, and distillers showcasing their wonderful products.

While browsing, shoppers will also be able to take in live music.

Entry to St George’s Hall market is free and it will be open from 10.30am – 4.30pm. 

It is hoped that the market will be held on a seasonal basis.

Liverpool has a well-established market offering, ranging from the weekly Great Homer Street Market (Greatie Market) to a regular programme of farmers’ and craft markets.

A spokesperson for Liverpool City Council: 

“We’re really looking forward to bringing a new market into Liverpool’s historic St George’s Quarter.

The plateau and St John’s Gardens have been the home to our popular Christmas market for a number of years so it will be great to see stallholders at the Hall during the summer months.

“We had a fantastic response to the call out for traders that we issued in May and we can’t wait to welcome them on Father’s Day along with plenty of shoppers who are looking to enjoy a great day out in a unique venue.”

Local artist and trader Sandra Hepworth said: 

“As a trader at the council’s Farmers’ Markets for over 20 years it is always exciting to have new destinations and St George’s Hall has to be the jewel in the crown. 

“I exhibited there many times in the past with my Liverpool Art, and the atmosphere and surroundings with its history makes it a fabulous experience and with many local traders exhibiting there it is definitely a day not to be missed.”
