More strange fountains, this time squares in the square, water flows upwards, flows to the edge. On one side, Trinity Market.
Trinity Market, a recently refurbished Edwardian market, 1902 the oldest covered market in Hull. Stripped back exposing the iron columns and girders, open and airy.
They have attempted to create something like Borough Market in London, artisan food and other independent traders.
Contrast with grim failing markets elsewhere, too often destroyed for redvelopement.
Contrast with Central Market off Sincil Street in Lincoln. Grim an understatement, Coop and the City Council have done their damnedest to destroy the market and the surrounding area. Empty stalls, trash, one of the few stalls worth visiting a spice stall, closed at the weekend.
Trinity Market shows what could be if local councils had vision. Develop for local quality businesses, not as Lincoln, destroy an area, invite in chains.
It was in Trinity Market I found Caffeinated, as the name implies, a coffee stall.
One area of Trinity Market has bench seats. An area to sit and relax and enjoy the food on offer.
As I was leaving, a noticed a stage being set up, therefore I assume live music in the evening.
