Work is starting on the £2.7m transformation of Scarborough Market Hall.
Contractors are starting preparatory work on the St Helen’s Square building ready for a complete revamp of the market.
The market will remain open with current stalls available throughout the work, which is expected to be completed by December.
The historic building will get a new mezzanine upper floor, creating space for new shops, offices and a café.
This is a fantastic step forward for the Scarborough Market Hall redevelopment and it is wonderful to see contractors on site and beginning the process of creating a much-improved market for Scarborough.
In the meantime the market will remain open and traders look forward to welcoming customers old and new.
