It is the policy of the market to be open on market days irrespective of weather conditions. The majority of our stalls are under cover.

The market will only be closed once it is evident that there are no longer customers in the market because of persistent rain.

Should the dog relieve itself in the market, the responsibility rests with the owner to remove, and dispose of the deposit.
