If you’re out and about in Blackpool and want to get out of the inevitable ‘ rain and wind’, this place is a great indoor retail therapy haven. Lots of stalls to appeal to everyone, good prices and friendly stall holders. Try the pork pies in the butchers by the main entrance, yummy .

People talk about how commercialised Blackpool has become.
This market beats the trend.
The old signage and red paintwork meet you as you enter.
Inside a whole array of stalls and makeshift cafes greet you.
The range of product is massive from mobility goods,clothing,rock,fruit and veg.
Extensive choice of pies and meat.
My favourite is the large egg custard.A real treat from bygone times.
Come in and take a look.

Great space which has survived the vast redevelopment of the centre of Blackpool. The stalls are more or less the same as they have been for ages with one or two changes: the sad loss of the biscuit stall at the back still hurts each visit.
However, there is a fantastic costume stand with some notable masks.
The meat pies at the stall immediate front are as special as ever. Will continue to visit whenever in town. Just lovely.

My dad has been coming to this market for years and getting his clothes from one of the middle stalls which caters for larger sizes and shorter leg lengths. Normally the staff are absolutely lovely, really happy and very helpful. HOWEVER today we went in to get dad some shorts for an upcoming holiday, he found his size, tried them on and all was great until we went to pay. We unfortunately was met with an elderly sour faced woman who was doing some paperwork and another staff member. As we were being served the sour faced women doing paperwork stated loudly " I hate it when people breath on me" then moved away to the other side of the stall...my dad suffers from COPD and uses a portable oxygen machine so does take louder breaths. If you have used this market then you will know the stalls are encaged and there is a good sized gap between the customer and the staff. At the time I didn't say anything as I could clearly see my dad was embarrassed and upset. I think this is absolutely disgusting behaviour from someone that is employed to work with the public! Very rude, inconsiderate and has unfortunately left us with a low option of the once loved store my dad uses quite regular. We will NOT be coming to this stall again.

The cafe situated on the left as u walk in from the front ! We ordered food we where served by a rude bad mannered older lady ! My Friend ordered us food n drinks and put £10 down on counter for it to be taken and then was asked for the payment again ! When we addressed this with another lady who works there Tracey I do believe she was called could only apologise for her managers /owner behaviour and got her to check takings ! Which of course apparently where right !!! So we left it and sat waiting for the food we had double paid for only to have an item missing so waited patiently for it then had to ask as was clearly forgot and she piped up again saying we didn’t order it and hadn’t paid for that item absolute joke ! Will not return and we do always like to help small independent busses but this one needs new management ASAP .

Was passing on holiday and I remembered that there was a stall that sold jigsaws. I also remembered from last year, that it was ran by a friendly chap who knew his stuff. He also showed me his folder of jigsaw stock that he could get.
Anyway back to the present, I went to his stall and he was nowhere to be seen, which was disappointing as I spotted a 1000 piece completed jigsaw and I was interested in buying it, but I didn't know where the box was.
There was also no price displayed for this, so I asked the woman in charge of the stall and she raised her voice to me!
"The price is on it" she shouted.
I said to her that it was not a box, but a completed jigsaw that I seen.
She interrupted me when i tried to explain, as it appeared that she wasn't interested and walked away to another stall.
What a horrible, unfriendly, hostile, disgusting woman.
If she was minding the stall, then she lost a sale due to her rude ignorance.
The next time I visit Blackpool, this market will be getting a well deserved body swerve.

I've lived in blackpool for 30 years this market used to be packed out I notice they now have 9 empty units one or two favourites inc the pet stall have gone!
Be careful and check thoroughly if you buy anything from a certain long established stall at the back that sells clocks and electrical items as they won't refund or replace if faulty.
