Restarting the Market Programme

Restarting the Market Programme


Further to the news posted in February the Government has now laid out its route map out of the current lockdown restrictions subject to cases and hospital admissions continuing to fall.

As you will be aware, we have been working on the programme for our usual Markets across the season from March to October for some time and all of those approved are on the website at  Now we have the Governments route map we will unfortunately not be able to operate any markets until the mid- April.

If you have applied for these markets, then you should have received an email informing you of their cancellation due to the ongoing lockdown restrictions in March and early April.

We have also been speaking to all our other local authorities, who are operating under the Governments lockdown restrictions and roadmap but are also applying their own view to those restrictions which may mean further Market cancellations.

We are endeavouring to manage these potential cancellations as we are made aware and move dates and markets to ensure we have the fullest programme possible as we come out of lockdown.

With this in mind as we now move to restarting our markets, we need all traders to ensure the following is up to date on your trader profile on the website:-

  • Insurance documents are uploaded to your profile and in date.
  • Your electrical requirements are up to date on your trader profile. We use your trader profile to assess our on - site generator requirements so this is extremely important to ensure that traders have the correct power requirements listed.
  • Environmental Health documentation is correct and up to date on your trader profile. We submit the information you provide to local authorities for inspection ensuring that when we arrive on site traders can set up and trade with no issues from Environmental Health.
  • Please check that your profile in all other areas is up to date, vehicle registrations, address and other contact details alongside your product lines should any of these have changed.


We all want to be ready once we reopen to maximise the opportunities we will have.

If you have any questions of queries, please let us know in advance of the first markets.
