The Aberystwyth Corn and General Market Co. was established in 1870, mainly to build a market hall. The Hall was built in the early 1870s. Its condition deteriorated so rapidly, however, that a new hall had to be built in the mid 1890s. In 1922, the company went into voluntary liquidation, with George Fossett Roberts acting as liquidator.
