Smithfield Market Hall

Smithfield Market Hall is a former market hall on Swan Street, Manchester.

The area now known as part of the Northern Quarter in Manchester was named Smithfield Market in May 1822 because the potato market had moved to the area in 1820. As the market became more popular more land was acquired in 1850. Built between 1857 and 1858 and roofed over with iron trusses in 1865 the Hall replaced an earlier butchers' shambles on the same site. As the area continued to expand a retail fish market was built the same year; the building has since been demolished however its extension built in two stages has survived.
