Plans to turn Milton Keynes market into 'stronger retail and food destination'

    There are planned changes for Milton Keynes Market, due to take place from April this year.

    Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP) has announced its intention to take over management of Milton Keynes Market in April 2023 from existing operator Bray Associates.

    Milton Keynes Development Partnership (MKDP) is a Limited Liability Partnership (LLP) owned by Milton Keynes City Council (MKC).

    The MKDP aims to develop its portfolio of land assets to fulfill MKCC's objectives to develop the new city.

    The outdoor market in Central Milton Keynes offers a wide range of items to shoppers such as fresh fruit and veg, clothes, gadgets, sweets and more.

    Adam Sciberras, MKDP’s Special Projects Director said: “During 2022 we started looking for potential development partners to define the future of Milton Keynes Market and work with us to create a stronger retail and food destination for Central Milton Keynes, with a more dynamic and modern customer experience.

    “Having explored this in great detail, we believe that an in-house team who work in the city and, in the main, live in the area too, is best placed to manage the market and evolve the existing offer.

    "This has the potential to bring great social value and improve what is an essential resource for a significant proportion of Milton Keynes’ residents, particularly those with lower incomes.”

    Milton Keynes Market opens five days a week remaining closed on Monday and Wednesday. The trading hours are 9am to 5pm on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday, and Sunday and is home to over 100 stalls.
