Redbrick Market

One of the most popular spots in the Baltic Triangle is Redbrick Market, a huge indoor market which is a treasure trove of unique finds. 

The market features an array of independent stalls selling everything from vintage clothing and handmade crafts to eclectic home-ware and quirky gifts. 

It’s the perfect place to hunt for one-of-a-kind items and support local traders so be sure to take a visit – it’s open 7 days a week! 

Baltic Market

A highlight you absolutely cannot miss out on is the Baltic Market, Liverpool’s first (and arguably the best) street food market. 

Situated in the iconic Cains Brewery Village, the market brings together some of the city’s best food vendors under one roof. 

Whether you’re craving gourmet burgers, vegan delights, or sweet treats, the Baltic Market offers a fantastic culinary experience that caters to all tastes. A few of our favourites include Polpetta, Richies, and Little Furnace. 

The vibrant atmosphere, live music, and frequent events make it a favourite spot for students and working professionals alike! 

BoxPark

Adding to the Baltic Triangle’s appeal is the only BoxPark outside of London. 

Located inside of the Cains Brewery Village, this innovative all-day dining and events space combines retail, eating and drinking, and entertainment in a unique setting built from repurposed shipping containers. 

BoxPark offers a unique experience where visitors can enjoy a variety of food and drink options, and experience live performances and events like no other. 

Whether it’s watching the latest sports screenings, enjoying some delicious street food and refreshing cocktails, or hosting an intimate event on their alfresco terrace, this is the place to be!

Baltic Triangle Development 

Looking ahead, the Baltic Triangle is set to expand and become even more accessible, with plans underway to reopen the train station in one of Liverpool’s fastest growing areas. 

The £100 million development is part of a broader initiative by recently re-elected Liverpool City Region Mayor, Steve Rotherham, to enhance transport links and support the area’s growth and is set to be complete by 2027. 

The new station will be built on the site of the former St James Station which closed in 1917, and will provide direct access to the heart of the Baltic Triangle, making it easier for locals and visitors to travel to and from the thriving neighbourhood!
