An update for our visitors: sudbury market and COVID-19

Throughout the COVID-19 crisis Sudbury Town Council has run an essential food market with social distancing measures in place. This vital provision has given local residents and visitors an option to buy quality fresh food in a safe outdoor environment.

 

In order to maintain a safe, socially distanced market we have to limit the number of stalls we can accommodate. So that we can start to welcome back all of our regular traders we have made the decision to temporarily introduce a third market day on Fridays.

 

This summer, Sudbury Market will operate three days a week on Market Hill: Thursday, Friday and Saturday (stalls open: 8am - 5pm). Traders' temporary days can be found below, this may be subject to change so please call ahead on the day you are visiting if you would like to ask if a particular trader is present: 01787 372331. 

The effectiveness of our social distancing measures depends upon everyone playing their part, please take note and expect the following if you are shopping at Sudbury Market at this time:

  • Please keep your distance between yourself and other customers - there are barriers and road markings in place to assist with this (see images). 

  • Cashless payments are encouraged, please use card where possible. The majority of our traders can accept contactless card payments.

  • One-way systems are in place for some stalls, this is to reduce contact with other shoppers and help us maintain social distancing. 

Please help keep Sudbury safe and observe all government guidelines. Thank you for supporting Sudbury's local independent businesses.  Visit Sudbury's Virtual High Street to find out more about local independent businesses.

Did you know?

Sudbury’s market is more than 1000 years old, mentioned in a charter dating back to 1009. The earliest reference to the town was in 799AD when Aelfhun, Bishop of Dunwich died here. When you visit Sudbury Market you're unlikely to miss a statue honouring Thomas Gainsborough, one of Britain’s most famous artists who was born in Sudbury in 1727. Princess Louise, Queen Victoria’s daughter, first unveiled the statue on 10 June 1913, just outside St Peter’s Church, now a bustling cultural venue hosting a year round calendar of markets, community events and concerts to compliment our outdoor market. The bustling Sudbury Farmers' market can be found here on the last Friday of every month.
