The £1.4m redesign of the town centre market has 10 stalls selling everything from poutine to Portuguese tarts.

Billed as a key part of the Sefton Council’s COVID-19 recovery plan, the King Street scheme was conceptualised by Warrington-based studio DV8 Designs. In addition to the food and drink zone, there’s also a flexible events area that will host pop-up markets and other events.

Sitting within the market is its new feature bar, managed by Mikhail Leisure group.

The market formally opened its doors on 22 July, several months later than originally planned. Back in October 2020, its opening date was meant to be early 2021.

Sefton Council leader Ian Maher previously said he was confident the market would soon become “one of the North West’s best food and drink gems”.

A list of traders, courtesy of Sefton Council, is as follows:

  • Blackhurst Butchers
  • 600 degrees (Pizzas, Italian)
  • Hector’s Mexicana (Mexican street food)
  • Pacific By Vincent (Pacific Rim inspired foods)
  • Down and Oot (Canadian steaks, poutine, hot sandwiches)
  • King St. Bakery (Portuguese tarts)
  • Messy Moments (Desserts)
  • Birkdale Pie & Mash (Assorted pies)
  • Allotment (American Burgers et al)
  • Pitamu (Greek & Mediterranean)

The market is open Wednesday-Sunday starting at 10am.

Funding for the market’s revamp came, in part, from the Liverpool City Region and the Towns Fund.
