When should I arrive?

Stallholders should arrive on or before 7.00 am (depending on how long it takes to set up your stall). All vehicles must be clear of the car-park before 8.00 am. On arrival, stallholders will be directed to a numbered car space (site) by the Market Supervisor. All sites are numbered and allocated.

All stallholders' vehicles must be removed from the market area by 8.00 am. Only authorised vehicles are permitted to remain - and any space occupied by such a vehicle must be paid for. As the market is open to 2.00 pm and customer safety is our prime concern, no vehicles are permitted to re-enter the market area until after 2.00 pm. As Wade Lane is a public thoroughfare, stallholders must ensure that this is kept clear for through traffic at all times. Council Officers attend the markets and will issue infringement notices.
