Sevenoaks District Council has agreed to trial a new Sunday market in Swanley in the coming weeks.
The six-month trial will see a broad mix of market traders, including those selling local food and drink, farmers’ market produce and traditional market goods.
The current Wednesday market is ran on behalf of the Council by Bray Associates who will be taking on the responsibility of the Sunday trial as well.
Bray Associates and the Council will keep a close eye on the new market to ensure its smooth running.
Cabinet Member for Cleaner and Greener, Cllr Margot McArthur, says: “The market in Swanley has always been hugely popular with residents and visitors alike so we are delighted to give a Sunday market a trial.
“A new Sunday market will bring a lot of new business into the town, benefitting many other shops and businesses. As the market becomes more established, we hope to include more local traders, craft producers and opportunities for young entrepreneurial traders too.”
The Sunday market will take place in Swanley High Street, by Swanley Square.
The decision was made at the Council’s Cabinet meeting on 13 January 2022.
