More reasons to head to market
ONE of Hull's most famous markets has expanded to help improve trade.
The successful Trinity Open Market has increased its number of stalls by a third in an attempt to attract more people to the Old Town.
The 18-stall market will now feature 24 stalls and will extend from Trinity Square into Trinity House Lane and Whitefriargate.
The development has been welcomed by councillors and businesses in the area.

Hull City Council leader Councillor Steve Brady said: "The Old Town is a jewel in the crown of the city and the market is another great addition.
"It is not an expensive thing to do but it could have a very positive effect.
"The extra activity in the area should drive footfall and offer an alternative shopping and city centre experience while showing off the Old Town area."
Hull City Council is working with HullBid to support the market.
Julie Buffey, organiser of Trinity Open Market, said it will complement the popular indoor market.
Ms Buffey, who owns Roisim Dubh in Hepworth Arcade, said: "I came up with the idea of the open market in August because I wanted to offer something different to shoppers.
"It is hard to get people down to this part of town so hopefully this will help.
"It is critical we attract more people to the Old Town. It is an area most cities would love to have."
The expansion comes days after the council revealed plans to introduce a 200-space car park in Tower Street.
Work on the site will begin when the new swing bridge opens, which is expected this month.
