The new and improved Lancing Village Market returns this weekend at a new location with a renewed community focus with fun, food and fantastic local goods on offer.
New South Street location from July 3rd
Adur District Council has been working with Lancing Parish Council and Lancing Traders’ Association to bring back the event, which will take place tomorrow (Saturday, July 3) in South Street from 10am to 2pm.
The market, which is being run seasonally, has been relocated from North Road in order to make it more visible and encourage more shoppers to attend. A number of traders will be showcasing their goods alongside some light entertainment and stalls from local community groups.
Cllr Emma Evans, Adur’s Executive Member for Environment, said: “I’m so pleased we have been able to work closely with traders, community groups and the Parish Council to revamp the Lancing Village Market.
“We’ve listened to feedback from residents and businesses and worked to try and deliver something a little different which we hope will be a real focal point for the community. The market stalls we have selected will also complement the existing shops on South Street.
“I hope as many people as possible will come along and enjoy the fun, whether it’s to browse stalls, enjoy the entertainment or pop into one of many terrific local businesses that are based in the village.”
The market will be set up south of the railway crossing gates on South Street down to the junction with Chester Avenue. The road will be closed to traffic so people can visit and browse safely.
The event is being run with COVID restrictions and guidelines in place.
Mike Mendoza, Chairman of Lancing Parish Council, said: “I am delighted to say that once more, the people of Lancing and any visitors from further afield will have the opportunity to enjoy this market – which we have worked hard to bring back to the village.
“There will be something on offer for everyone and I wish the market every success as it continues in the future.”
