Visitors give Tunstall Market top marks

Spotlight on The Potteries is always pleased when it discovers nice comments about our area.

Recently, while glancing at TripAdvisor, we found three reviews written by visitors to Tunstall Market.

All reviewers rated the market as excellent.

The first reviewer, who posted her review on 14 September 1917, visited the market to buy bacon and to purchase a sausage roll and an egg custard for her mother. She found that people in the market were friendly and said it had a “good wool stall” and “a great café”.

Her words about the café were echoed by the second reviewer who went to the market to get a bite to eat. Although the café was busy, the reviewer, who had a full English breakfast and a mug of tea, said the “huge meal” which was reasonably priced “tasted great”.

The third reviewer, whose review was posted on 17 February 2018, described the market as “a lovely, old-fashioned indoor market. This reviewer, who seems to know Tunstall Market well, said the original Victorian Market Hall still retained the “lovely old atmosphere that it had decades ago” adding that the stalls were excellent and sold “a wide variety of goods”.

Historical geographer, Betty Cooper, and international heritage lawyer, David Martin, are writing a book about Tunstall Market. If the third reviewer or anyone else who has known the market for many years would like to share their memories of it with Betty and David please email them at daymar727@talktalk.net
