I REPLY to a letter from J Moran (Letters, March 21) about renaming the Above Bar market in Southampton Kingsland Street after saying the market that was in St Mary Street was closed.

I would like to inform you that the market has never closed and is still running three days a week – albeit a lot smaller than in past times, but after being relocated for the new doctors and houses/flats in the local area we have only a fraction of the existing market site between the Kingsland Tavern and the Plume of Feathers public houses. So to put a misconception to rest we are not closed and never have been. We still trade as Kingsland market.
