Several new traders have made their way to Darlington Indoor Market.

The council have confirmed new vendors such as Beaded Treasure, Haus of Moss, Gina’s Gems and Collectibles are now moving into their new units.

They will be followed by Marketplace Fish and Chips, and Chef Matei Baran’s deli venture in August.

This comes after work on phase three of the venue’s redevelopment nears completion.

Beaded Treasure will sell a range of handmade jewellery across five categories: retro; vintage; mid-century; classic; and modern.

The business is headed by Ambica, who started the business as a pop-up stall in 2021.

Haus of Moss will offer a range of floristry options, including hand-tied bouquets, bridal and wedding flowers, funeral arrangements, and commercial options.

Gina’s Gems & Collectibles, run by Gina Cengher, sells second-hand and pre-loved treasures which have been restored,

There wares include vintage clothing, bags, crockery and a range of speciality pieces.

Michael Harvey, Manager at Darlington Market, said: “The renovation of the market has seen a rush of new tenants getting in touch, with some brilliant ideas to add to our already extensive offer.

“We’ve pushed the boat out with phase three of the market’s redevelopment, and there is a real buzz around the venue and it’s brilliant to see the market going from strength to strength.”

“In addition to the new retail brands that are due to open, two new food-focussed offerings are set to welcome the public from August.

"Marketplace Fish and Chips, run by Adam Gilmore, will operate from the repurposed fishmonger’s stall, and in addition to tasty fresh-cooked treats, the business will also sell wet fish to cook at home.

“Chef Matei Baran, who already operates Haus of Bratwurste at the Market, has now confirmed the opening date of his much-anticipated continental deli, which will serve customers from early August.

“The deli will take on an Italian theme, acting as a deli by day, but offering small plates and wine by the glass in the evenings.”

Cllr Chris McEwan, cabinet member for economy, said: “The indoor market brings retail, hospitality and leisure together under one roof and continues to evolve and increase in popularity.

“I am delighted to see that the extensive redevelopment work, and the continued dedication of our existing traders and everyone at Market Asset Management which operates the market, is attracting such a fantastic range of entrepreneurs whose businesses will add greatly to our local economy and help to ensure Darlington remains a vibrant and exciting place to live, work or visit.

“I am looking forward to watching the new businesses grow as they settle into their new home and encourage you all to pop down and support these fantastic new additions which are helping to bring the market back to life."
