Third weekly market day introduced in Sudbury to maintain social distancing and avoid overcrowding of stallholders
A third market day has been temporarily introduced in Sudbury, to maintain social distancing regulations as the coronavirus lockdown restrictions start to ease.
The regular town centre market, which runs every Thursday and Saturday, will now also trade on Fridays until further notice, enabling stallholders to return without causing overcrowding by trading on the same days.
A statement from Sudbury Town Council reads: “In order to maintain a safe, socially-distanced market, we have to limit the number of stalls we can accommodate.
“So that we can start to welcome back all of our regular traders, we have made the decision to temporarily introduce a third market day on Fridays.”
Shoppers have also been urged to respect the two-metre separation from other customers, to adhere to one-way systems where indicated, and to make transactions with a credit or debit card, rather than cash, wherever possible.
The market will be open on all three days from 8am until 4.30pm. If you would like to find out what day a particular trader will be present, call 01787 372331.
