South Shields Market Place

Busy market day.

Click the picture to enlarge.

Traditional outdoor markets have been held here for over a hundred years in the Market Place dominated by the Old Town Hall. We have normal markets on Monday and Saturday and a Flea Market on Friday. Use the map link to get a better idea of the size.

Do you hold a market in your town?

  1. Curley – I like this a lot. I’ve taken a lot of lousy pictures of street markets from ground level. They are too busy but also all look about the same. Your creative angle, particularly with the man walking down the aisle in the foreground, make this one stand out. Good work.

  2. The perspective you chose makes for a great photo. As to markets in Portland, farmers’ markets show up all around the city during the summer months. And from April till December, I think it is, there’s an arts and crafts market every Saturday, beneath the west end of the Burnside Bridge. Just today it’s been announced that by 2009, it will have been expanded and moved into Tom McCall Waterfront Park.

  3. Curley, you really do bring out the best of Southshields. (Hope you are successfully recovering those lost pics.)

  4. I agree totally re. the angle. Most unusual. It looks like an enormous area with lots of activity. I like the overall effect.

  6. As seen from this good angle those canopies are quite attractive and pintoresque.
