Romford Market to reopen this week

The market has not opened since March

Romford Market is to reopen this week, it has been announced.

Havering Council has announced stalls will return in two phases, with food retailers opening on Wednesday, 3 June and the remaining stalls back open two days later.

Recent guidance from the government meant that outdoor markets could reopen from today, but Romford Market is only open on Wednesday, Friday and Saturday each week.

Councillor Damian White, Leader of Havering Council, said: “Romford Market is the heart and soul of Romford. It is what makes Romford so unique and special and I am delighted to be able to welcome traders back to our historic market.

“The market place is ideal to shop locally, while observing social distancing, outside, and I would encourage everyone to pay them a visit.

“Over the longer term, we will be working with the traders’ association to help improve Romford Market through investment and additional trading days.”

Aisles between stalls have been widened to create more room for shoppers, while the council has told stallholders that they must sanitise “within their stalls for themselves and their staff” if they want to continue trading.

Markers have been painted onto the ground to help remind shoppers to stay two metres away from people they do not live with while shopping in the market.

The council has advised visitors to the market to “exercise patience and courtesy to fellow shoppers and traders” and reminded those displaying Covid-19 symptoms to not visit the market and isolate at home for 14 days.
