ABOUT MARKET BUILDINGS
The extensive refurbishment and redevelopment of the Market Buildings and French Halles was completed in November 2006 providing the Island with its only dedicated shopping Centre.
Since then the area has re-established itself as the retail and cultural centre of the Town and, indeed, the Island with regular exhibitions and events that complement the retail experience.
The Market Buildings comprise two buildings fronting onto Market Square, Fountain Street, the Church Square and Market Street sitting as a ‘Hub’ of retail at the spanning out onto all for quadrants of the St Peter Port retail centre and houses some of the UK’s most in demand stores.
A Potted History
Originally constructed in stages from 1822 to 1878. The buildings are listed as Historic Buildings. The Meat Market was constructed in 1822, Les Arcades in 1830 and the Fish Market was completed in 1877 by John Newton of London. These buildings have remained at the centre of retail and commercial trade since the early 19th century.
Today the Market Place stages weekly markets to ensure the legacy of the building lives on – These markets can be experienced on Friday’s 9am-3pm and on specific Saturdays throughout the year.

TESTIMONIALS WE MAKE OUR VISITORS HAPPY
Fresh Friday is always a treat when I’m in the office, it means I can grab some home-made food and when there’s music playing it gets me ready for the weekend! A great way to get everyone into the heart of town.
I love the centre of the Market, reminds me of it when I was younger, especially the hustle and bustle when the markets are on!
Christmas time in the market is great for the family. Great food. Great stalls and shops
