    Southport Market staff and traders will take a well-earned break later this month following six months of non-stop work serving an international array of foods and drink.

    The popular King Street venue will close temporarily from Monday, January 17th to Wednesday, February 2nd. As well as giving the teams some much-needed respite it will allow contractors to add finishing touches and refurbishments to the market space.

    The break It follows the busiest period yet of Southport Market's opening year. Tens of thousands of customers celebrated Christmas in style with festive film showings, visits to Santa's grotto, stunning decorations and a delectable array of dishes and drinks.

    Cllr Marion Atkinson, Sefton Council's Labour Cabinet Member for Regeneration and Skills, said:
    "In its first six months of operation, the new Southport Market has surpassed all expectations.

    "We knew from detailed research prior to launch that the venue would be a success, but we could not have predicted just how popular it has been with our residents and tourists.

    "It is down entirely to the dedication, hard work and talent of our traders, bar staff and Sefton Council's tourism team, who have worked non-stop since July 2021 and I am sure everyone will agree they have earned a short rest.

    "This temporary closure will also allow us to put the finishing touches and additional final refurbishments to the venue and we look forward to welcoming our wonderful customers back in February."
    Following its reopening on Wednesday, February 2nd, customers will be treated to a brand new calendar of incredible events including weekly live music, open mic nights, artisan markets, and an Easter extravaganza.

    People can find out more about Southport Market and keep up to date with the latest events at the venue by visiting www.southportmarket.com

    Market? It's just one large collection of different cafes and food outlets. Hardly a market at all now.

    It’s outrageous! Imagine my disappointment when I went for a walk down Castle Walk only to discover there is no castle.

    Who actually owns the various businesses in there?
    A local cafe owner said that just one guy owns the majority - would be interested to know if that was correct or not.
    Mainly because using taxpayers money to provide one restaurateur with subsidised premises would not really be very fair.

    Talking of the Southport Market - there's lots of fluff in the press about what an 'amazing success' it has been after the Council (i.e. we) spent £1.4m refurbishing it.
    But none (including Stand up for Southport or the Liverpool Echo) actually quote revenue or profit figures for the venue.
    Which seems strange - as if it was such a rip-roaring success surely we should be seeing how much we are getting back for our £1.4m investment?
