Kettering Markets

In light of the government’s announcement made on 23rd March 2020, all non-food traders should now close but essential food market traders can remain open as part of the food supply chain.  To adhere to this guidance we will no longer operate our Wednesday Market. Markets on Thursday, Friday and Saturday will continue to operate for own rig traders offering essential retail only. These restrictions came into place from close of trade on 23rd March and will remain until further notice.

We are asking the traders that offer essential retail to follow government advice:

  • Ensure a distance of two meters between customers and shop assistants
  • Ensure that spaces are not crowded
  • Provide queue control
