Preston Markets - Box Market (for rent)

Preston Box Market unit

Preston Box Market unit

The innovative Box Market forms part of the overall Preston Markets offer which includes a brand new Market Hall and refurbished Outdoor and Second hand Markets. Located under part of the 1920s Fish Market Canopy these upgraded shipping containers provide an unusual place to trade your wares from.

The use of containers is predominantly non-food as there is not a mains water supply or drainage. A variety of access and frontage designs are available with the ability to customise the space to suit.

All shipping containers come pre-boarded with a distribution board, ready for power/lighting to be connected per your requirements.

Applications requesting splitting containers will be considered as will applications from collectives and collaborations.
