Mendip District Council fully recognises the importance of its outdoor markets, and the ability of our communities to shop at these open-air environments.
There has been an expected decrease in trader numbers and footfall over recent weeks and months, as such we are adjusting our market opening times slightly – while still remaining open daily.
All weekday markets will run as normal, with slightly reduced hours, 9am-12 noon. There will be no markets on Saturdays.
Tuesday: Glastonbury Market 9am-12pm
Wednesday: Wells Market /Frome Market 9am-12pm
Thursday: Street Market 9am-12pm
Friday: Shepton Mallet Market 9am-12pm
Saturday: No markets at Wells or Frome
Since the 2020 lockdown, the Council has worked hard to ensure that all necessary measures are in place to support the delivery of Mendip Markets, and to support its traders as they continue to provide essential provisions, such as food, cleaning products and pet supplies.
Your Council has ensured the markets remain open and COVID secure. To enable this, we have introduced additional measures in line with Government guidelines.
These include recommending the wearing of face coverings, encouraging social distancing and the introduction of cash free payment options, in order that our much-loved markets continue to operate as safely as possible for both stall holders and our communities.
