In the centre of St Helier is the Central #Market, a Victorian cast iron market hall which was opened in 1882 as a result of market stalls being banished from nearby Royal Square in 1800. It is worth seeing both for it’s architectural detail including the recently restored central fountain, and for the colourful array of fruit, vegetables and flowers inside. The water at the base of the fountain is home to many goldfish. It’s a favourite place for young children to visit while in St Helier, and to throw a coin in the water. The money is emptied out once a month and donated to local charities. #jerseyinsta #Jersey #StHelier #heritage
