YORK'S historic Newgate Market is to be re-named Shambles Market as part of its £1.6 million refurbishment.

The re-branding follows 18 months of consultation with shoppers, stallholders, local businesses and people who didn’t shop at the market, said City of York Council.

"Making the market easier to locate was one of the key findings of the consultation and the rebranding is designed to overcome this and encourage greater footfall between the two of the city’s most distinctive shopping areas," said a spokeswoman.

Cabinet member Cllr Sonja Crisp said the new name reflected the market’s close connection with the Shambles, and the medieval snickets linking the market and Shambles were being improved as part of the refurbishment.

“Everyone knows the name of this, Britain’s Prettiest Street – as voted by Google Street View users – and one of the UK’s most visited streets, so this name change makes it very easy to locate which will build footfall and makes absolute sense.”

The market will return to its home before the start of St Nicholas Fair in late November, following re-repaving, improvements to drainage, the installation of all-weather refurbished stalls and high-grade lighting.

As an ex Market Trader I agree that trading from Parliament Street brings in more money for the stall holders.

As a citizen though I think that the majority of stalls are messy and sell cheap tack and it needs to move back ASAP.

it makes sense calling it Shambles Market, but until they stop selling tat, covering the floor with posters and generally looking like a down market jumble sale, they will never attract people.

The trouble with the market is the muppets at CYC ,it should be left in Parliament St with the new refurb stalls that would look smart and clean! the market as it is now in the street is a mess. James Alexander should start listening to his voters every one I speak too want it in street, even people who rang radio York want this too. Shambles market will be a bloody shambles with back to empty stall after novelty were off. Please note the money been spent on this shambles is a loan which has to be paid back in 5 years! it won't come from rents as market won't have the traders!

The market should be based in Newmarket.
It is not "The Shambles", so forget it.
It is not Parliament Street, which is a disgrace when the stall holders take over.
Sadly, far too stall do sell tat.
This excludes the fruit and vegetable stalls. Their stall holders charge too much.
Go to a decent small market, over the Pennines, to Bury. I go there once a month, but buy fresh fruit and veg at our local supermarket.

I agree.

It's not particularly strong: a very lightweight serif font and a coloured motif that anyone with the slightest visual impediment will have trouble assimilating. Worse, it contains the word 'market' and features a fluctuating zig-zag line that ends on a down turn. Hardly very positive and certainly not supportive of traders trying to make a living there. Didn't they think of this?

And what happened to the definite article? Why not "THE" Shambles market? Or are they re-naming 'The Shambles' plain 'Shambles' as well?

Why am I an idiot just because I disagree with you?

I traded for a few years on Newgate and once again i will say that a lot of what is sold is cheap tat. Also a number of stallholders could do with a few lessons on how to keep a tidy stall. There are some excellent stalls but sadly they are overshadowed by the mess around them.

I'm def. no fan of CYC but a lot of traders are their own worst enemies.

My memory of the days when I traded are that there were a few traders who used bullying tactics on other traders, and CYC, constantly claiming that the market wouldn't survive without them, shutting up early and attempting to drive their vehicles on before time. Whoa be-tide anyone who got in the queue before them.Some of them are still there and I assume are still at
loggerheads with fellow traders and CYC.

It should be about working together. Too many of the long established traders live/lived in the past and any new ideas were shouted down without discussion. I used to attend the meetings that were held on a regular basis with CYC (I assume that they still are) and to be honest it took a lot of courage on my part to go as I was often verbally abused, by one trader in particular, who seemed to think that he owned the market. I was also extremely disappointed to see how few traders attended the meetings.

I honestly don't believe that new stalls will make any difference to how tidy the Market looks. It doesn't take a lot of money to invest in a few cloths to drape over the stalls and then to hide the rubbish underneath. A small number do this already and it makes a world of difference.
I find that a lot of new traders seem to think they can take over, Know it all, not saying u as don't know you! What you are all forgetting love or hate the market Parliament St was designed and built to have a market, as for tat I won't agree with that. I also agree the market at the moment looks a mess as it needs proper stalls these won't last a day in proper winter storms. Markets aren't every ones cup of tea but believe me people of York do love there market feedback to me from customers tell me this! and I'm very biz. It should be about working together. Too many of the long established traders live/lived in the past and any new ideas were shouted down without discussion. I used to attend the meetings that were held on a regular basis with CYC (I assume that they still are) and to be honest it took a lot of courage on my part to go as I was often verbally abused, by one trader in particular, who seemed to think that he owned the market.

It is not "The Shambles", so forget it.
It is not Parliament Street, which is a disgrace when the stall holders take over.
Sadly, far too stall do sell tat.
This excludes the fruit and vegetable stalls. Their stall holders charge too much.
Go to a decent small market, over the Pennines, to Bury. I go there once a month, but buy fresh fruit and veg at our local supermarket.
It would be a disaster for York to move the market to Newmarket though it would be handy for the citizens of Cambridge which is just 12 miles away.

I love the city of York with all my heart. As an outsider I visited the market last year and it was, unfortunately, one of the shabbiest looking markets I've ever seen. To the point where I didn't even venture very far. The overall look was poor and it was clear that nothing but junk was being traded. It was hard to find sort of jammed back behind the Shambles.

One look at Parliament Street and it's clear it was designed for a market. Is that not an option? Location is important and so is appearance, also the quality of products being sold. Where were the homemade jellies and jams? The homemade cereals and other foods? Fresh flowers and plants? Fresh should take precedence, not cheap junk. That would make the market relevant. Also, is it limited to the weekends? A bit of scarcity would make the fresh items more sought after.

Just a few ideas. I attend my local market each week and these are the reasons why.

James Alexander should start listening to his voters every one I speak too want it in street, even people who rang radio York want this too. Shambles market will be a bloody shambles with back to empty stall after novelty were off. Please note the money been spent on this shambles is a loan which has to be paid back in 5 years! it won't come from rents as market won't have the traders!
I disagree with you, that does not make me an idiot.
The market was a disgrace, it feels like a bric-a-brac stall. I used to buy my veg there but it became to much of a hassle. Most of the stuff on sale looks like the left overs from a car boot sale.

The location of the market is irrelevant if you sell tat. People drive from across the UK for the specialists markets because they sell excellent produce and unique goods. They also smile and are very friendly.

Raise your game traders and you will reap the rewards.

I agree. It's not particularly strong: a very lightweight serif font and a coloured motif that anyone with the slightest visual impediment will have trouble assimilating. Worse, it contains the word 'market' and features a fluctuating zig-zag line that ends on a down turn. Hardly very positive and certainly not supportive of traders trying to make a living there. Didn't they think of this? And what happened to the definite article? Why not "THE" Shambles market? Or are they re-naming 'The Shambles' plain 'Shambles' as well?
It's not THE Shambles and never has been, to the best of my knowledge.

Well said. I have rediscovered just how fresh and tasty the market food is and its not that expensive. Lets keep it in Parliament St where it should be.
Keep up the good work.
At last positive feedback! how anyone can say fresh veg which my grower cuts every morning before market is tat or fresher in M&S is unreal. Im happy for anyone to come to my stall and point out to me what is tat or fresher in M&S I'm happy to go with them to M&S and they can show me! Some produce is cheaper like Bananas but as they only pay 10p a kg and we pay about 80-90p kg I should hope they are!
Have you tried the Cheese stall I've just started buying from him and its the best I've ever tasted. I alway bought supermarket Cheese not anymore. anyway you can follow us on Twitter @sheilas321veg

Are you the female who last year refused to give me a bag to pick my own veg telling me you would pick it for me?????resulting in a letter being published in the press.
Don't think so but were not a supermarket! We have baskets to pick your own but don't allow some produce like apples as they bruise. How childish writing to press sad life you must have but no not me. Our apples have a do not handle ticket on so if you can't read that's your problem. And why would you want to pick veg?

Try shopping in markets abroad they are much more accommodating. I was not intending buying apples I wanted potatoes which dont bruise and the woman knew this

I'm glad market not in press every day but it's funny seeing the same old people slagging us off! I only look at press when market. Supermarkets sell horse meat and who knows what other stuff they get up to but they do no wrong very funny.

I often bring horsemeat back from France.It is very nice and very healthy in comparison to many other meats.

I don't think that your numerous nasty comments are helping your cause one bit. When I'm in town I occasionally pop to the market for fruit, and I have bought from your stall. You are now the second fruit and veg. stall that l shall be keeping well clear of in future.

I would imagine that there are many readers who don't post, but do read the comments, that will be put off by your ranting.

Keep up the good work.

I'm glad market not in press every day but it's funny seeing the same old people slagging us off! I only look at press when market. Supermarkets sell horse meat and who knows what other stuff they get up to but they do no wrong very funny.
I often bring horsemeat back from France.It is very nice and very healthy in comparison to many other meats.
Try it sometime you might be pleasantly surprised
Great that's your choice

I don't think that your numerous nasty comments are helping your cause one bit. When I'm in town I occasionally pop to the market for fruit, and I have bought from your stall. You are now the second fruit and veg. stall that l shall be keeping well clear of in future.

I would imagine that there are many readers who don't post, but do read the comments, that will be put off by your ranting.
Well again thats your choice I make apologies for speaking my mind!. York market has some really good traders and fresh produce and to call it tat is a insult to me and other traders.

I agree. It's not particularly strong: a very lightweight serif font and a coloured motif that anyone with the slightest visual impediment will have trouble assimilating.

Didn't they think of this? And what happened to the definite article? Why not "THE" Shambles market? Or are they re-naming 'The Shambles' plain 'Shambles' as well?
It's not THE Shambles and never has been, to the best of my knowledge.
"The Shambles (official name Shambles) is an old street in York, England, with overhanging timber-framed buildings, some dating back as far as the fourteenth century. It was once known as The Great Flesh Shambles, probably from the Anglo-Saxon Fleshammels (literally 'flesh-shelves'), the word for the shelves that butchers used to display their meat. As recently as 1872 there were twenty-five butchers' shops in the street but now there are none."

So I guess if you want to be official it's "Shambles" but for mere plebs like me it always has been and always will be "The Shambles".

Doltare I've looked back at old articles on the market and it is mostly the same names slagging the market off!. I've read all comments on here and I agree with you, why would you write to press over picking out a Potato? So you have to sit back and be insulted or there not going to shop with you.

I visited Borough Market in London last week. Stunning variety, very attentive stall holders, all giving free samples of their produce. Turned out the majority of which came from Yorkshire. They seem to do pretty well as they go the extra mile. I'm a huge fan of markets but the atmosphere and lack of quality around York market astounds me. Perhaps if they stocked the kind of quality you can find locally then it wouldn't matter where they were based or what it was called.

I believe parliament street is a much better location to have the existing market. Traders are also saying their takings are up in the new location. I believe all the special events and Christmas market should be 'funnelled' into the new area under construction.

Lets give our regular and existing market traders a fair chance.

I will think that you would find that M&S and Morrissons did not start off on a 'shabby market stall' they certainly made the effort and thats my point.

If the market traders are correct and the commentators on here complaining about tat are wrong, the market would be thriving, is it thriving?

Every time some one says the market sells tat, the same traders come on here and say 'my stall does not', well perhaps your stall does not, but there are many that do and that is enough to drag the place down!

As far as specialist markets go, how many are smiling when they serve you? how many sell mobile phone cases and spread posters all around the ground? If those markets are busy but yours is not why?

Remind us of the comment you made about Chris Steward ?

Some people would prefer not to hear peoples true opinion's and have smoke blown up their bottoms.

York council are fantastic, I especially like the way they have cut essential services and spent money on important things like the arts barge , Kings Square ( so the chocolate story's tables and chairs don't wobble )
Pointless 20's plenty signs and the Lendal bridge trial was particularly well handled.
also the events the council have organised have been fantastic
illuminating York was unparalleled, the grand de party was such a huge hit and the camping was fantastic

I'm so glad we are saddled with debt repayments totalling more than a million pounds a year for these things, whilst drained are blocked and litter bins are stuffed full, street lights don't work and potholes go unfilled
I'm sure the old and vulnerable people having to pay more than double for warden services so they can stay in their own homes are overjoyed that the directors of social care are payed £700 per day

What a fantastic job City of York council and councillors do

Eh yes it was! The Little Shambles was a long road which was mostly demolished. So the market is on the historic Shambles. If you go to the council photo archive you can see where it used to run.

Thats because a lot of them have huts made for them. I'm not calling anyone idiots, what I am trying to say is my stuff is not tat, my stall is always neatly organised and we give good old fashioned customer service. Service with a smile. If you don't buy from the regular market that's not my problem.

I did say that I buy from supermarkets (that does not equal NEVER from a market stall). I also said, the stall holders attitude on this forum has NOW assured that I NEVER shop at the market. Please do not misquote me, or take my quotes out of context. That is on the assumption your comment was directed at me....[/p][/quote]I shall also never purchase from the regular market again.

Apart from the fact, it's a market not bloomin HARRODS . People go to the market to bag a bargain not to buy a pair of shoes at £199. It is ridiculous with some of these negative comments. You are in the minority as 9 out of 10 of my customers prefer the market where it is now.

Here's an idea, let's all place bets on how many thousands of pounds it cost the council to come up that *that* logo, whoever is closest wins a bulk pack of their tipple of choice!
