More than just a Market

Taking over the old Chapeltown Market which hogs the corner of Market Street between the WMC and the railway line, the new development – featuring a large number of recycled shipping containers which will be spread over two levels in places – is planned to open for business in January 2021. Its vibe will be a little different from the rest of Chapeltown, and really is more that just a market…

Championing a sense of community, TRAXX is looking to bring together responsible retailers and flagship dining concepts in a recycled space. The street market’s shipping containers will be filled to the brim with artists, designers and retailers. Each container space will eventually be allocated to a business and there will also be opportunities to launch pop-up shops and new business ventures.

Alongside all of this, the new market will also feature a plethora of street food traders and we hope to explore other ideas such as community-led rooftop garden for people to enjoy.
