Farmers Market Re Opened after the first Lockdown on Sunday 2nd August 2020
The entrance to Hall Place Bexley site opened to the public again in mid July 2020 with access to the Visitors Centre. A week later the Riverside Cafe and Jambs Owls opened too.
The farmers market re opened following the first lockdown on the 1st Sunday of August – 2nd August 2020.
Initially from the entrance to Hall Place past the Glasshouses there was a one way system in place with this continuing in to the Visitors Centre.
In August 2020 the farmers market moved to take place on the grassed area alongside the Courtyard which allowed the stalls to be spaced slightly further apart. There was an entrance and exit location for the market. Many of the stallholders take contactless payments and ordering in advance for collection on the day of the market is also offered.
Following the December 2021 The Riverside Cafe and Visitors Centre re opened at Hall Place on Monday 29th March 2021 and the Easter Sunday 4th April 2021 Hall Place Bexley Farmers Market was able to open.
From December 2021 the Farmers Market moved back on to the Courtyard Area which is hardstanding and a few stalls also extended on to the grassed area. This was again to allow more space between stalls and more space for customers. The number of stalls currently attending the farmers market has increased which means not all stalls can be accomodated on the Courtyard Area.
The Next Date for Hall Place Bexley Farmers Market is Sunday 4th September 2022
