Your health and safety and that of the general public is our number one concern and as we appreciate that some traders stock is quite fragile we now have a system whereby if the wind is forecast to be gusting above 30mph (according to the Met Office) on the Tuesday evening/Wednesday morning prior to the market traders with vulnerable stock may cancel by close of business on the Wednesday and will only pay a £25* cancellation charge. If we cancel any market at the last minute (usually Friday morning) due to gusting winds being forecast over 40mph (which is enough to move stalls) we will also only levy a £25* admin charge. We do of course always try our best to keep traders informed of any weather issues as they develop, though would stress it is generally only strong winds that would see us cancel a market. If you have concerns please be sure to check the Met Office weather report in the time-frame outlined.

*Note, these admin charges are reduced for those who pay for ‘enhanced membership’.
