Nothing special about this market, outside markets pretty poor. Inside markets a bit better, I suppose it kind of has what your looking for but not enticing. Needs update now!

Widnes Market is not like the old one from years ago, it is bascically stalls with shop prices i feel. there are some bargains but dont expect anything to cheap. The meat and fish market is also much smaller than years ago and a bit dissapointing. there is plenty or parking and best of all its free.
