Traders settling in at new Liverpool wholesale marketJust three weeks ago the Liverpool wholesale market moved to a new location after more than 50 years at the Old Swan site. According to Liverpool City Council the move was absolutely vital.
The traders based at the new site
The market had been at the old site since 1964 and the traders were in desperate need of better facilities. The market moved from a 21 acre site to one of just five acres. The £7 million purpose-built site is in Stonebridge Cross, Gillmoss.
Ian Mack, branch manager at Total Produce
Ian Mack from Total Produce is pleased with the move,"Total Produce have made a big investment in this new site, around £1.5 million. We have offices, our own canteen and a food service area and our colleagues from our Wigan branch will move in soon. The new site does not have the same market feel, there is no buyer's walk for instance, but people are still more than welcome to walk in buy and produce. We need to get the message across that we are here. The old site was next to the meat and fish markets which also led buyers to the market, but this has gone now. That said the new facility is much better and the working conditions have greatly improved."
