Street markets return to Wiltshire towns

May 29, 2020 8:31 PM

Following the recent change to guidance, Wiltshire's street markets will be open from Monday 1 June with stallholders now able to sell their full range of goods.

When COVID-19 restrictions were introduced, market stalls were only able to sell food.

Social distancing will be in place, and the public are strongly urged to take notice of the signage and ensure they do everything they can to adhere to the measures and keep at least two meters apart from each other and the stallholders.

To keep stallholders and the public as safe as possible a socially distancing queuing system will be in place for each stall. Stallholders will be regularly using hand sanitiser, and cleaning where appropriate, and people are also encouraged to pay via contactless where they can, and should not unnecessarily pick up items and put them back.

A number of stall holders have laid their stalls out differently to operate a one way system and all have been advised to follow guidelines around hygiene.

Council officers will be on site to manage set-up and ensure stalls are socially distanced, and arrangements are in place at each stall for a socially distanced queue system

The operating times of the street markets are:

Tuesday

Melksham, Market Place from 9am-2pm
