Hot on the trail of winning Cheshire Life’s market of the year, the team at Warrington Market has collected two further accolades.
These new achievements are courtesy of the country’s leading market organisation, the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA), as part of their ‘Market Hero’ awards.
Warrington Market’s management team has taken top prize in the Team of the Year category and achieved Highly Commended status in the Innovation category for the digital table ordering system which provided a new way for customers to order and pay for food, drink and goods using any smart device.
Warrington Market Manager, Andy Ward said: “No one could have predicted the challenges that lay ahead of us at the beginning of 2020, but we are a tight knit, hardworking team and we were determined to get this fabulous new facility open. It’s been a massive effort and a huge success, so receiving recognition from our peers is a real boost for the whole team.”
The old market in Bank Street, closed its doors for the last time after 43 years in the summer of 2017, making way for the new Time Square development. After moving to a new temporary site in September 2017, now home to the Gravity Trampoline Park, traders finally moved in to their permanent, and purpose-built facility in the heart of Time Square in July 2020.
The market is currently open 9am – 3pm, Monday to Saturday, for essential services, and food takeaway from a selection of Cookhouse vendors is available until 6pm, Monday to Thursday, and until 8.30pm on Friday and Saturday.

Warrington BID Manager, Nick White said: ‘Warrington’s new state of the art modern-day market is key to the revival and reopening of the high street. This prestigious development puts the town centre on the regional map as a destination for food, shopping and leisure.’
