More Thatched Gazebos Articles A public market in Leicester is to be transformed into an "open-air plaza" of gazebo stalls.
Work has begun on the £600,000 project that will see part of the market's canopy roof removed at the site near the city's Corn Exchange, thisisleicestershire.co.uk reported.
According to the website, the work will also provide an area for gazebo stalls that aims to build on the success of recent food festivals. This will likely increase the use of African thatched gazebos and other such garden structures at the site.
Upon completion, the revamped site is to be used by food sellers on Fridays and Saturdays while from Monday to Thursday it will host arts, crafts and antiques sellers.
Councillor Paul Westley, the city council's cabinet member for markets, said: "This revamp is part of a larger strategy for the market in general.
"It will make it far more appealing to people from across the city and beyond by offering a wider range of stalls and attractions to shoppers."
