Alway known as Top Town Market Grimsby Market Place moved around over the years and the Old Market Place was outdoor stalls. It moved inside Freshney Place Mall. One of two Grimsby markets this one seemed to be thriving. I only saw a couple of empty stalls.
it is an eclectic mix of fruit and veg, bakers, butchers, fish, as well as cosmetics, cards, clothes, bags, pine furniture and much more.
The little coffee bar at the back is very basic but cheap and a stool to sit on. The staff were pleasant.
I hope it continues to thrive and I am sure it's location in the town centre really helps.
Freshney Place is in the centre of Grimsby, so you get hit with the traffic at any time of the day. They have two main car parks which get extremely busy and are not the easiest to navigate around, but compared to other town centres they're not too expensive.
It has improved drastically since they banned smoking, as it used to absolutely stink inside.
There's a good variety of shops in the centre, mostly the large national chains that you find on any high street but with a few little stalls and the odd local independant. There's also an indoor market connected to Freshney Place at one end which isn't open all the time and does smell very much like every other indoor market I've ever been to but is popular with many of the older generation.
This is the main shopping centre for Grimsby and the surrounding area. It has all the normal high street brands and a few unique shops.
It gets pretty busy on the weekends as this is really the only place to shop in the area.
There are some good places to eat and drink in the centre.
There are also good facilities for children, you can hire those little mini car things to push them around in!
Freshney Place has been running for many years and like the Freeman street market was a thriving trade I have seen the market going downhill over the last few years.
I think that with online shopping along with very high rents and declining footfall only the vedge, flower & a few others can manage. I have noticed that after 12.30 the market is dead you really have to struggle to spot a customer.
Its a shame as stalls like the craft stall cannot trade on takings that were actually taking less than the stall rent.
Freshney Place Market at one time was a great place to shop but i find its gone down hill, there are plenty of fruit and veg stalls and a large cafe in the centre also a book stall a couple of clothes stalls and a cobler, but it lacks variety its boring i want to see something different on there, people walk onto the market and it takes about 10 minutes to walk around and out again, its dull and un inviting to visitors.
a nice place lots of different stalls although lacking a good craft stall of late you can get anything ranging from eggs ,shoes,to make up, markets seem to be a dying thing of late that why it is nice to have a market with such a big choice of stalls
