The market is open for fresh food and produce, plants and cycle services. Other licensed traders are unable to open their stalls, either because of the national lockdown restrictions or because their opening would contribute to the risk of unsafe numbers of people gathering and loitering in and around the market area.

Please wear a face covering in the market and move on quickly after doing your shopping to make way for others to do theirs.

Stalls have been trading at the historic market square in the city centre since the middle ages.

The market square was recently awarded a certificate of excellence by TripAdvisor.
