The picture above, printed in the Guardian to announce a £12.3 million makeover for the market, shows a packed and thriving Fish and Game Row. The picture below, taken six months into the financial year, shows a bleaker and emptier scene. Steve Atack’s veg stall is gone and Kitchens, the last of the game stalls, is now out of the game. The refurbishment is meant to be financed by profits from the market. So far the only improvements have been the electrical works, which traders have been asked to pay for themselves.
