Barrow Market is located in the heart of the Town Centre alongside the forum theatre and opposite Barrow Town Hall.
Barrow’s original Victorian-style market was created in 1864 for the Furness Railway Company and then bought by Barrow Borough Council in 1874. Later, in 1903, Barrow Fish Market was built behind the Town Hall. The current Market on Duke Street was opened in June 1971 by The Queen. After receiving £16million Levelling Up funding works are due to get underway shortly to refurbish the Market and Town Centre.
