Award-winning Adur Markets set to return
Adur’s award-winning markets will be returning to the district's high streets as part of wider efforts to help communities bounce back from COVID-19 .
With the government lifting restrictions to allow open-air markets to take place, Adur District Council is bringing back the popular stalls after taking steps to ensure the environment remains safe for all.
However, to allow staff, stallholders and visitors to adhere to social distancing, both will involve fewer stall holders and be held at the alternate location of Tarmount Lane car park. The market will also operate with amended opening hours of 10am to 2pm
The next scheduled market in Lancing will be the Halloween-themed event in October.
Cllr Emma Evans, Adur District Council’s Executive Member for Environment, said: “We know how important and valued the award-winning Adur Markets are to supporting our high streets which is why we’ve been looking at all options to ensure they can return. The safety of our team, traders and those attending the markets is paramount which is why we took time to get this right.
“We’ve had to make some changes in Shoreham, where the narrow nature of East Street will make social distancing difficult. However, the nearby car park just two minutes walk from the high street is an obvious solution and we look forward to inviting everyone back to sample the great produce that our traders have to offer.”
