Our Bakewell stall market will be joining the vast majority of markets in Derbyshire and across the country continuing to operate on a much reduced and secure basis throughout the new Covid restrictions.
The Monday market will be sited in Granby Road only (not the Market Place) with around 20 traders in a safer outdoor environment selling essential goods only - allowed in the Government's lockdown rules. In normal times the market boasts around 100 stalls.
Face coverings are compulsory (exemptions apply) for traders and customers and a one-way system will be in place in Granby Road, with numbers into the sectioned-off market zone controlled, meaning queuing might be necessary.
A number of sanitising stations will be available around the market, including at the entrance, and signage will remind customers about social distancing requirements, use of sanitiser and the wearing of face masks.
Our message to customers is only visit the market if it’s for essential purposes, come on your own and don't touch items you do not intend to buy.
Bakewell has had a market since 1330 - more info here.
