Food lovers will be able to buy good quality local produce when Petworth Farmers’ Market sets up its stalls again this month.

The market is being reintroduced on Saturday 27th June, in a temporary location at Pound Street Car Park. This is a health and safety measure in order to reduce the number of people in the Town Centre at any one time, given that many of the Town’s shops have reopened for business.

Social distancing measures will be in place to ensure the safety of customers, stallholders and staff.  These include:

  •  a one-way system
  • cashless payment
  • there will be no food tasters
  • 2 metre social distancing will be in place at all of the stalls, with limited numbers allowed to queue.

Advice has been provided for stall holders, and there will be Marshalls on hand on the day to ensure that people adhere to the measures in place.

“We are really pleased to see Petworth’s businesses back up and running and are delighted to be able to run the market again, supporting both our local stallholders and customers,” says Petworth Town Council Chairwoman Liz Singleton.  “The last few months have been a challenging time for our small producers and we are delighted that our colleagues at CDC have allowed us to hold this month’s event in the Car Park, making it safer for all members of the public.”

The market will take place on the last Saturday of every month, from 9am until 1pm.
