Description:

This single storey market building contains several small shops and also acts as a frontage to an open air market.
Over the main entrance to the market is a relief panel referring the produce of the market, the central image is a bull's head, this is surrounded by game birds, fish, fruit and other produce.
On either wing of the building is a relief panel of the same coat of arms, a quartered shield with several charges.

The building frontage has several slim pilasters which act as divisions between shop fronts. These are topped with ceramic capitals depicting a Green Man-type face amongst foliage.
