NEWPORT Market is set to re-open in just over a week following a multi-million-pound redevelopment.

The opening date of the Newport’s Victorian Market, which has been regenerated by LoftCo, has been moved to Saturday, March 19.

The market will have an abundance of traders – from Newport and further afield including Cardiff, Barry, Bristol, and Penarth – with goods, food, and services.

We previously announced 16 new traders who – along with returning firms Rae Barton’s Fruit and Veg and Friendly Neighbourhood Comics – will be based at Newport Market. You can read that here.
