As you may have read from previous posts, I wanted to talk more about the town of Bishop Auckland alongside many other topics through this blog.
I wanted to remind people of our community what we have actually got within our town as opposed to some reoccurring comments of what we haven’t.
Alongside promoting the many different businesses within our town centre to a wider audience, to help to attract more visitors to the area.
Bishop Auckland is a town, our town, but when compared to what we haven’t got within the high street, many compare it against what a city has.
Bishop Auckland is a developing town and will continue to be transformed over the continuing years.
Many towns and even cities up and down the country would welcome the opportunity that we are currently in.
But with all progress and new projects, and the construction of these, they do take time.
Leading on to the title of this blog, and the return of Bishop Auckland’s Market.
Bishop Auckland will always be renowned as a ‘market town’ the many stories I’ve eagerly listened too from many residents, and visitors from a far recalling how they remembered it, and the passion and proudness for it.
A vibrant and busy town, with lots of shops, lots of traders and lots of choice.
For the past 3 weeks since its launch, the new market has returned to its regular spot, filling an area of the market place, and giving the town a focal point once again.
After hearing good reports I popped down on Thursday to see for myself.
With an array of different offerings of produce and products, from local businesses, it was a welcome sight to see in the heart of our town.
And as word spreads amongst the local communities and the region, our market town will steadily grow and become more popular with visitors and traders alike.
One stand out business that have not only welcomed the new market, but have taken it by storm are; The Auckland Cupcake Co.
Sold out for the 3rd week running, and from the beautiful looking but equally tasting delights, you can’t fail to see why.
Bishop Auckland’s market now takes place every Thursday from 9.00am till 4.00pm.
With further plans to open on a Saturday too, for more information please visit their Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/BishopMarket/ where you will find more information on which businesses you will find trading, or details on how to register for a stall.
