Welcome to Preston Outdoor Market
Wide mix of traditional traders under one elegant Victorian canopy.
Located in front of Preston Market Hall under an elegant Victorian canopy, dating back to 1875, Preston's Outdoor Market has a vintage charm to it.
The famous canopy ensures that even when it's raining there is plenty of cover, so you can comfortably peruse the stalls at your pleasure.
The Outdoor Market has an eclectic mix of friendly independent traders.
If it's a gift you need, flowers and perfumes are close at hand. if it's for a new baby or young relative, books, toys and baby wear stalls have it all covered. You can even pick up a greetings card to go with them. Or, maybe you have a few errands to run. Why not stop by to pick up some batteries and home furnishings or explore the beds, rugs and white goods stalls. If that's not enough, discover a hidden gem on the antiques stall or a classic vinyl on the record stall.
