We have found a selection of open market scenes in the Hartlepool Mail archives showing everything from stall holders to bargain hunters.
See if you can spot someone you know in our archive photos from 1976, 1982, 2004, 2006, 2010, including a couple of scenes from Peterlee’s open market.

A cold day in March 1973 but these customers didn't mind the weather as they browsed through the stalls.
