History of Pool Market
The Market has been a feature within the Camborne, Pool and Redruth conurbation for nearly 30 years and offers a wide range of products and services.
The building was originally a builders’ merchants owned by David and Annette Arthur. It first opened as an indoor market on 10 April 1988. For about a year before this, there had been a very busy outdoor market on the site with traders queuing and fighting for a pitch every weekend. Some traders were only allowed to trade on one of the days to allow other traders to come in on the following day.
It was taken over by Markets South West and then by Wendy Fairs. The Arthurs took control again until the year 2000, when it was leased to Town & Country Markets, who ran it for 10 years. On 12 August 2010, the Arthurs took over again and retain ownership today.
