Markets return to King’s Lynn and Hunstanton

With lockdown restrictions easing across the country, and government advice that markets can reopen, traders are returning to King's Lynn and Hunstanton.

In King's Lynn traders are coming back to the Tuesday Market Place on Tuesday. Meanwhile Hunstanton will welcome their traders back on Sunday to the usual location in the Southend Car Park, off Le Strange Terrace.

Cllr Graham Middleton, Cabinet Member for Business Development, said: "I'm pleased to see the markets return to King's Lynn and Hunstanton and thank the traders for their cooperation.

"In King's Lynn all the borough council market traders have relocated to the Tuesday Market Place to keep the town centre safe, ensure social distancing can occur, and I appreciate their support with the move.

"It's been a very difficult time for all traders and I welcome them back to the towns and look forward to seeing their trade recover as soon as possible. I would like to encourage all residents to support their local traders by visiting the Tuesday Market Place in King's Lynn on Tuesday and Southend Car Park in Hunstanton on Sunday."

Cllr Stuart Dark, Cabinet Member for Emergency Planning/Covid-19 Response, added: "We have followed government guidance to reopen the markets in King's Lynn and Hunstanton and thank the traders for their understanding with the new measures in place which include larger spaces between stalls and to monitor number of customers who visit their stall at any one time."

From this week there are stalls expected in King's Lynn who sell handbags, luggage, bags, wallets, belts, shellfish, watch battery replacements, gift sets, greetings cards, wrapping paper, calendars, garden ornaments, benches, planters and renewable energy installers.

In Hunstanton there will be stalls selling ladies and gents clothes, books, stationary, jewellery and hair accessories.
