Mendip District Council has revealed that Wells Market will reopen this week. In coming to the decision, Mendip say a complete review of layouts, traders and facilities was carried out, to ensure the markets meet the latest Government guidelines.
Wells and Frome markets were identified as best suited in the district to support social distancing guidelines, and traditionally judged to have the highest footfall to generate trade for both the stallholders, and support the local shops.
Wells Market will open Wednesdays and Saturdays, while Frome will open on Saturday June 13, and continue operating on Saturdays only, until further updates.
As the national restrictions ease, Mendip will be working with stallholders to ensure the markets at Glastonbury, Street and Shepton Mallet begin to open too.
