Ely Markets will remain open during the second national lockdown for essentials only.
In line with government restrictions, this will include fruit, vegetables, eggs, cheese, bread, meat, fish, plants and takeaway food and coffee. There will be no seating and shoppers will be required to leave the Market Place promptly.
The opening times of the market remain the same and there will be markets on Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays as usual. All other traders, such as crafts, antiques and clothes, will return to Ely Markets when the current lockdown finishes.
“The market is an important part of community life,” says Emma Grima, Commercial Director of East Cambs Trading Company. “It’s very important to us that people can continue to shop for great quality produce in the fresh air.”
Each stall will display clear signage and defined areas for socially-distanced queueing. Contactless payment systems will be in place where possible. Information on home deliveries and ‘click & collect’ services will be available on the Ely Markets website.
Ely Markets will be open for essential shopping from 5th November – 2nd December. The market will re-open fully when legally able to do so.
More information on traders attending, home deliveries and ‘click & collect’ will be posted on Ely Markets’ social media and website over the coming weeks. Please follow Ely Markets for more information.
