ANNOUNCEMENT IN CURRENT SITUATION – 13th July 2020
Although the Government announced that from 1st June open air markets could re open they also had to abide by the current health and safety restrictions linked with COVID 19.
Due to Dartford Farmers Market being held in the pedestrian High Street with shops either side of the market location and minimum numbers of people being allowed in the shops and queues forming outside it is not possible to open the farmers market at present. We are in discussions with Dartford Borough Council who are gradually opening the general market on Thursdays and Saturdays. We will be visiting the High Street on general market day to look at the spaces available for the farmers market stalls and then providing a health/safety risk assessment to Dartford Borough Council.
We’ll keep you updated for the August 2020 farmers market
