The main hall is 151 feet long, 111 feet wide and 43 feet high to the tie beams, and originally the cost of building was £7,000 and £9,000 was spent on the site and approach roads.

In August of 1853 the Market Hall was opened with great pomp and ceremony, and meant the removal of the busy congestion, with the “opening of a large and well ventilated area in the heart of the town”.

In the early 1900’s housewives of Scarborough would visit the Market stalls every Thursday to purchase fresh farm butter and eggs from farmers’ wives, who also sold flowers, curds, honey, fruits and vegetables to make some “pin money”.
