Scarborough Market Hall

Use Scarborough Market Hall or lose it for good

I enjoyed the recent articles by Yolanda Carslaw on Scarborough Market Hall’s traders. I’ve been a happy customer at Metcalfe greengrocer and Nockels butcher for 20 years. Value, taste and buying British are important in our household. I rarely go anywhere else for fresh produce.
