More than 20 new traders have signed up to join Romford Market
A wide range of stalls are going to be selling clothes, food, toys, and home furnishings this Sunday, 19 July.
It will be boosted by more than 20 new traders who have joined Romford Market following the closure of Dagenham Sunday Market.
Havering Council has been planning to open the market on Sundays for some time and a recent survey showed 83 per cent of shoppers are in favour of the move.
“Romford Market is the jewel in the crown for Romford, so I am excited that we can open this historic location on Sundays,” said the Leader of Havering Council, Councillor Damian White.
“Given its outdoor setting and the already successful social distancing measures we have put in place, Romford Market is the perfect place for people to continue to shop locally and support small businesses, whilst staying safe and Covid-secure.
“The new Sunday opening hours will make it easier for local shoppers to visit the market in their free time, providing a much-needed boost to both existing and new traders, as well as the surrounding shops and venues.”
All council-owned car parks and on-street parking bays will be free of charge every Sunday from Monday, 3 August. This includes the Town Hall and Angel Way car parks near Romford Market.
