Markets in Sheringham and Cromer are set to reopen with the easing of the lockdown.
The market in Sheringham on the car park at Station Approach will reopen from June 6, followed by the return of the Wednesday Market on June 10 and Cromer’s Friday market on June 12.
North Norfolk District Council (NNDC) will take extra precautionary steps to ensure the safety of shoppers, and health and safety officers have risk-assessed the format, layout and operation of the market.
The market will operate using a one-way system with strict two-metre social distancing measures. There will be overflow safe areas where customers will be served, with one market stall’s distance between each trader.
NNDC officers will be present on the market’s initial reopening to assess the system and improve it for subsequent market days, if necessary.

Richard Kershaw, NNDC portfolio holder for economic development, said: “It is important that shoppers feel safe and confident as they visit the market traders. We have taken every precaution to accommodate shoppers and traders with their safety and wellbeing as our priority.”
