Horsham’s Town Centre markets will be in operation on Saturdays. Supplying essential fresh produce in the Carfax and Bishopric, during the current Coronavirus outbreak.
Horsham District Council understands the concerns being expressed by some residents, about the continuation of markets in Horsham Town Centre. However the availability of fresh produce is an essential service to members of the public. Who are unable to secure vital supplies by other means.
Saturday Carfax and Bishopric markets will therefore continue and will be focused on essential food only. Social distancing and safety measures in place. This service will be kept under review.
The markets are also looking at the rapid development of click and collect and delivery service options.
The safety measures the Council has agreed with both markets are as follows:
- Operating hours from this Saturday will be 9am to 4pm (to allow staggering of shopping, some stock may be limited)
- Stall placement will be dispersed at least two metres apart
- Payment must be by card/cashless payment only
- Traders to wear gloves (and masks as available)
- Signs to be put up asking customers to maintain a two metre distance apart.
