In today’s blog post we’d just like to reassure visitors on two points: yes, we’re still open and, yes, we’re taking every precaution to ensure the safety of both the general public and our dealers. Central to these precautions is the requirement to wear a mask. Don’t worry if you forget yours as they are available for £1 on the door (with complementary disposable gloves).
A one way system is in place meaning that visitors must enter by the Villiers Street entrance (by Costa Coffee) and exit by the stairs leading up to The Playhouse Theatre. We carry out a temperature test on all dealers and visitors with a non-contact infra-red sensor. Anyone failing this test is asked to return home and self-isolate. A one metre social distancing protocol applies in all areas of the market.
Although these measures are inconvenient, they are a prerequisite for the safe operation of the market which will always be our number one priority. We look forward to seeing you this Saturday.
