New covered food court inspired by London’s Borough Market
By Andrew Merrell | 13th November 2019
A new covered food market could be built in a Gloucestershire town modelled on the famous Borough Market in the nation's capital.
The retail and trade food and drink market in the city's Southwalk Street sells food ranging from fruit and vegetables to meats, breads to fishmongers, chocolatiers and cheese makers and numerous cafes and street foods.
Now it has been revealed that one of the final pieces of the jigsaw that is Dransfield Properties on-going plans to overhaul and re-establish the former Merrywalks Shopping Centre is a food hall.
Rebranded Five Valleys Shopping Centre, the projects has already seen a multi-million pound investment by its Sheffield-based, along with financial input from Gloucestershire's own GFirst LEP local enterprise market.
It is understood Mark Dransfield, the owner of the developer and shopping centre owner, believes the right scheme would complement the existing Saturday Farmers' Market Stroud is already well known for.
It is believed the scheme would see a seven-day-a-week market with "different producers" to the nearby farmers' market.
Punchline has contacted Dransfield for more details.
