Owner description: Blackburn Market is situated at the heart of Blackburn, Lancashire and is a modern market hall. We still have all the traditional traders you would expect from a market but all undercover. We have a food court, fresh food and non-food stalls and shops. We have toilets, free to use cash machine, baby changing facilities. We are also home to Blackburn Visitor Information Centre and Shopmobility. Lots of available car parks and we are open 6 days a week Monday to Saturday.

Reviewed 21 July 2014

Poor variety of stalls,dirty looking uncoordinated flooring.It is like entering a submarine with all the exposed piping and ducting.Not very pleasant odours come up the escalator wells to the floor above detracting from the pleasure of having a coffee in the cafe there.

market looks unfinished as you can see all the pipes and air conditioning as no cover to the ceiling. A lot of the stalls are empty and the ones that are occupied are expensive and sell rubbish. mostly food court and the only good food stall (jacket spud) has closed due to the rental prices. At the moment its full of mobile phone acss stalls and fruit n veg stalls. No variety and prices are very high as they have huge rents to pay. on a good note the toilets are very clean and roomy but are unisex!!

“Food, clothes and tourist info”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

I'll be honest, we ducked into the market hall to dodge a shower of rain! It's a modern building, light and airy, directly opposite the cathedral and beneath the main shopping mall and multi-storey car park.

Loads of stalls with all you'd expect at a market, clothing, fabrics, deli's meat & fish, and the local Tourist Information point. Several coffee shops and eateries at the top end of the market. All OK if that's what you are looking for.

Oh, and there's a grand piano for anyone to play - so long as they know what they are doing!

“Lively market with variety and events”
Reviewed 26 January 2014 via mobile

I visited when a health event was on promoting family health and freebies and incentives. A welcome find and the market open six days has a lovely array of goods and local crafts. Food is well represented and a food hall with cuisines of all cultures with specials and daily specials on offer. Recommended for all the family

Thank you so much for taking the time to review Blackburn Market on Trip Advisor. It was great to see you discovered us when visiting a health promotion event in the market as we do try to have lots of events and activities, so that we are more than just a market.

Hope to see you again.
