Morpeth Farmers Market has re-opened after lockdown but with stringent Covid-19 measures including a stall layout facilitating social distancing, hand sanitiser available and contactless payment encouraged. Producer numbers are limited as the producers themselves exercise discretion about returning to the market
Morpeth Market is managed by Northumberland County Council and Sanderson Arcade, working in partnership with Morpeth Town Council, Morpeth and District Chamber of Trade and other local organisations through the Morpeth market working group.
Although farmers’ markets are not restricted to farmers, traders must:
- Be local – and in Morpeth, we count that as being from up to 50 miles away
- Only sell their own produce, and
- Must be involved in the actual production of what they are selling
