Who hasn’t visited the traditional market in Sunderland’s City centre some time during their lives? The market of course is Jacky Whites.
Clutching onto their Mam or Dad’s hand, they will have visited the many stalls.
Maybe a visit with a grandparent during the school holidays helping to carry the bags home full with fresh food and lots of bargains.
Or of course, just going about your daily shopping.
The range of stalls in the market was endless from fruit and vegetables to music to fish, clothing, jewellery and pet care.
If it wasn’t in the market you wouldn’t find it anywhere.
Did you shop at Haswells, Ibbitsons, Thoburns or Dunns?
As well as the shopping, time was always made to chat to family, friends and neighbours.
Did you or your family have a stall, or did you work there?
