I hadn't visited this for several years and found that it has deteriorated a lot. The whole interior is full of scaffolding and there are numerous empty stalls so the whole place reeks of general decay and neglect. I felt very sorry for those stallholders...More

Called in as I noticed that the exterior of the building had been shuttered-off. Immense amount of scaffolding inside the building. So quite a bit of work to do yet. Noted lots of empty "stalls", most of which appear to have been re-vamped. The building...More

The Derby market hall is a marvellous building, the glass roof is superb with the entire Victorian interior feel to it. But the building is trying to attract shoppers back to it maybe with the new local council in charge (since the caring Labour party)...More

We made a special trip to visit the markets. So few stalls open, minimal atmosphere and ongoing repairs and scaffolding. I really hope that the economic situation will improve and these return to their hey day.

I used to come here for, err... health foods in the early 90s, and was glad to see it's still going strong - or at least strongish for a Thursday. Still a good variety of stalls with friendly stallholders, and the building still looks good....More

This market is near to all facilities, the bus station is close by. The stalls are varied with reasonable prices, and some unusual stalls upstairs. Well worth a visit, close to the Cathedral area , the Riverlights complex. and the Quad building.

Was surprised at just how impressive this city centre market hall is. Wonderful Grade 2 listed building, it has an incredible roof with some very eye-catching ironwork. Spent as much time looking up as I did admiring the wide variety of stalls. Rather sad to...More
