Ten years after being gutted in a disastrous fire Ashton market has won a competition organised by the National Association British Market Authorities (NABMA). The market received the most votes nationwide in the category of most favourite market.
I remember the old market as a youngster, toy stalls and a paper and magazine stall carrying the latest American 'Super Hero' Comics. These days I look for one of the few off-licences that sells Polish cherry vodka and a stall nearby that sells the best meat \(especially pork) pies I know of. Congratulations to the staff and workers of the market hall and market ground.
