District’s markets set to welcome back fashion, crafts and non-essential stalls

The next step in the government’s roadmap is welcome news to traders and shoppers in Kenilworth and Warwick with the reintroduction of ‘non-essential’ stalls to the ever popular weekly markets.

Although both markets have continued successfully throughout the lockdown, Market operators CJ’s Events and Warwick District Council are looking forward to offering visitors a wider range of stalls this week including fashion, jewellery, soaps, arts and crafts, with the return of familiar faces as well as a number of new enterprises and businesses.

It’s anticipated that there will be up to five additional stalls at Thursday’s market in Kenilworth and as many as 15 in Warwick on Saturday. Despite the expected increase in size and numbers of visitors, there will be no compromises made on health and safety and social distancing measures.

Kenilworth Market is open every Thursday from 9am to 3pm and Warwick Market takes place on Saturdays from 9am to 3pm.  In addition, the monthly Covent Garden markets in Leamington will resume on Sunday 25 April with around 40 stalls expected. Visitors to the markets are encouraged visitors to wear face coverings and to adhere to the rule of six if gathering within the Market area.
