Redhill History & Past
Redhill is a town in the borough of Reigate and Banstead within the county of Surrey, England. The town, which adjoins the town of Reigate to the west, is due south of Croydon in Greater London, and is part of the London commuter belt. The town is also the post town, entertainment and commercial area of three adjoining communities: Merstham, Earlswood and Whitebushes, as well as of two small rural villages to the east in the Tandridge District, Bletchingley and Nutfield.
In 1871 a new company was formed and the field opposite the hall was bought to create a livestock market. The new company did better enabling the Market Hall building to be enlarged to accommodate a bank and the post office. The local market moved out of the building when a dance floor was installed in 1896 and eventually moved into the market field.
One year later it was decided to develop the north side of the market field, the result being the buildings that still stand along Station Road from the centre of the town to the Abbott pub.
The fortnightly market continued for many years but eventually came to a close as the car superseded the horse and fewer animals were sold, and as the hygienic packaging of food, especially meat, began to take over from carcasses hung in the open for sale.
The Market Hall also remained busy for many years, staging events of all kinds but eventually progress’ caught up with it.
Present & Future
In 2017 Tudor Markets took over from previous management for Redhill Market, located in the beautiful town of Redhill in Surrey.
Progressing of the Market has been vibrant and exciting with the selection of fruits and vegetables, a florist, clothes, mobile accessories, kitchenware and menswear.
The market also has a variety of food choices such as Thai food, Jacked potatoes with multiple fillings, Indian food, Asian, Slovakian and Caribbean Cuisine.
