Moor Market ready to give Ashfield shoppers ‘Moor’ choice

Moor Market, Kirkby took a step closer to opening this week with the announcement of the new tenants of the Moor Café.

The café which will bring fresh barista coffee to Kirkby, will be run by established Café owner Krzysztof Urbaniak of the Bike Café at Idlewells Indoor Market.

The announcement comes as the internal works of the new indoor market are completed. Located on Lowmoor Road, Kirkby it will offer an open plan indoor trading area for seven market stalls and the new café. The vision for the new market is to attract artisan food, creative and craft traders to sit alongside the café.

Cllr Matthew Relf, Cabinet Member for Regeneration & Planning said “It’s fantastic that we are able to announce that a local entrepreneur is expanding their business and will be running the Moor Cafe. Krzysztof has built an amazing reputation for quality coffee and delicious cakes at Idlewells Indoor market, and their expansion to Kirkby will see a new café offer in the heart of the town centre.”
Krzysztof Urbaniak said “I am extremely excited about this opportunity. I want to offer customers high quality food and drink with a high level of customer service and look forward to welcoming new customers to the café.”

The market is just the first of many projects planned to be delivered through the government’s Towns Fund and Future High Streets Fund with investment of over £70m secured.
