"Over the last few years markets in my area have sadly declined to the stage where stall holders, who made their living from the sale of goods are not barely able to make ends meet ... The market at Bedlington had been one of the busiest in the area for over 20 years. They were housed on a large car park with room for many stalls and car booters. Now they are only given a small space for stalls and no car boot area. In the summer of 2015 it has been reduced to only 3 stalls and a tea van, I think by the winter it will surely close."--Page [3]
