End of summer season for Torquay Market. Autumn now begins!
Written by Jay Richards on 24/09/2020
This week marked the end of the summer season for Torquay Market, which has been running since the beginning of Summer. The market was given the go ahead to open back in June after the government guidelines changed. The market which has been operating on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays in the lower half of Union Street in Torquay, has now entered its Autumn timetable.
The market which has a variety of stalls ranging from food outlets to arts and craft stalls will now only appear on Saturdays in the run up to the Christmas period. Steve Holdup, Market Manager said “we’ve done our Summer season, we have to face the Autumn, but we are still going to go now to Saturdays.” “So, from this week onwards, we’re going to be trading on Saturday in Torquay Town centre, right through to Christmas itself”.
Historically Torquay has an annual market in the Town centre at specific times throughout the calendar. This year however has been subject to the restrictions and guidelines laid out by the government, which has meant that normal trading has been affected. The market is pleased to still be able to trade and welcome visitors to the bay to enjoy the delights it has to offer!!
