Saturday 3rd April sees the return of the much loved Ruddington Village Market on The Green. After a 3 month hiatus, the market returns on Easter Saturday with 40 essential traders selling food and drinks in line with current lockdown guidelines. If all goes to plan, non-essential traders will return to The Green the following month.
Ruddington businesses such as The Frame Breakers, Ruddy Fine Gin, Britmask, Mortons, Elms Farm, The Next Episode, The Ruddington Arms and Split Screen Coffee will be joined by regular traders to the market offering bread, cheeses, wines, pies, charcuterie, olives, preserves, fudge, macrons, doughnuts and much more from across the region.
Ruddington Village Market is a member of the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA) and closely follows their COVID recommendations. The market is licensed by Nottinghamshire City Council and follow the advice of Environmental Health to ensure the safety of the public, volunteers and traders.
Enhanced safety measures that were in place when the market operated last year will return. These will include traders and volunteers wearing masks (unless exempt), and hand sanitizer stations being placed around The Green and at each stall. Members of the public are also encouraged to follow the “Hands, Face, Space” slogan we’ve all become accustomed to, with 2m markings and guides for stalls that generate queues.
The Market will be open from 9am until 12:30pm. Visitors are encouraged arrive early to avoid the crowds and get your essential treats before they sell out!
