The popular antique market is returning to Market Harborough over the bank holiday weekend – with a new cutout on Sundays to whet your appetite, too.
The Sunday Antique Market will return to the city’s historic indoor market in the city center from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. on Sunday, May 30.
“The antiques market had been suspended due to the coronavirus pandemic but will restart with security measures in place on the bank holiday weekend,” Harborough council said.
Social distancing measures, including a one-in-one system at the entrance to Northampton Road, revised layout and hand sanitizing stations, will be in place.
Cllr Phil King, the head of the board, said: “We are really delighted to be able to run the Sunday Antiques Market again, but with a reduced layout.
“We look forward to the restrictions being lifted even further, which will lead to the return of more antique businesses and more opportunities for the public to reuse, recycle and reuse fantastic products.”
The return of the Sunday Antiques Market also sees the launch of a new Sunday cutout at the Market Café.
Cafe owner Kris Moore said: “We are so excited that the Sunday market is back.
“We will be launching our new Sunday Cutout Menu using produce from the market, including meat from John Ross and Son Butchers.”
He added, “We have used the lockout period to adjust our menu with an emphasis on fresh, local and market ingredients, so we look forward to receiving feedback from Sunday visitors.”
All companies wishing to exchange during the event can get in touch with [email protected] be added to a waiting list.
Harborough Market, which has thrived for over 800 years, is open 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday through Saturday and 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. for the Sunday antique market.
