THE MEXON STREET MARKET STORY
'Middlewich Mexon Street Market' is an new and exciting partnership between Middlewich Town Council, Middlewich Vision, local partners and participating traders. It is a not-for-profit market and all stall revenue will be used to sustain the market and other market projects and activities.
Footfall to Middlewich town centre is crucial. It ensures the survival of our local retailers and enhances our community. For many years, markets have formed an integral part of our high street and have attracted many visitors. The new Mexon Street Market has arisen as a direct result of the previous, privately owned market company pulling out.
It was decided, with the support of Cheshire East Council, to purchase our own stands and hire them out at a much reduced rate. This will give more encouragement to start up businesses and provide additional support to existing traders by reducing their outlay.
Why Mexon? In early Medieval times, the Kings Mexon market operated on a regular basis in the town. For this new opportunity we wanted to adopt something unique to Middlewich. Therefore, It was decided to modernise the original name and make it our own.
We look forward to traders, retailers, residents and visitors supporting the market over the forthcoming months and we thank everyone for their valued input which has enabled the 'Middlewich Mexon Street Market' to become a new and welcome addition to our high street.
