Traders needs to bring their own stands and stall equipment. Gazebos need to be secured with weights in case of high winds.
Traders must also provide details of their public liability insurance.
The flower market has around 25 – 30 pitches. There is a waiting list and some traders are asked to rotate so that as many people as possible get a chance. Priority is given to local businesses, those with high sustainability criteria, and those who bring something different to the market. All stallholders need to meet a minimum standard of appearance – and we are happy to help novice traders with getting their stand just right for market day.
Traders are provided with places to park within a short walk of their stall.
The market opens 9.00am to 3.30pm during the summer months and from 9.30am to 3.00pm in winter.

We champion sustainability practices, therefore no single use plastic bags should be used unless biodegradable. All traders providing bags must use paper or biodegradable bags. We encourage all visitors to bring their own bags and traders must do the same. Jute bags are available to buy providing a sustainable alternative for visitors who have not brought their own bag.
The overuse of peat is harmful to the environment and so we ask that all growing medium be peat-free, or with reduced peat content.
We undertake a risk assessment of the market to ensure a safe environment for all visitors, traders and volunteers. We ensure the market is compliant with government guidance on best practice for a Covid-19 safe environment. Traders are asked to comply with such practices.
While the government has removed any legal Covid restrictions such as wearing masks, keeping social distancing or hand sanitising, we require all traders to provide hand gel at their Flower Market stalls. We will appreciate, especially if the market is crowded, that all traders consider continuing with these sensible precautions.
