Historic Croydon market to open on Sundays

Traders are invited to apply for pitches and slots in a new regular Sunday market which will start this September in Surrey Street, central Croydon.

The council is extending market trading to seven days a week as part of its plans to improve the area and increase the number of customers using the street.

Hundreds of thousands of pounds are set to be invested by the local authority before Christmas on making the street safer and more attractive and giving it a more flexible layout.

Surrey Street’s Sunday Market will focus on street food, homemade and artisan produce, arts and crafts, vintage and retro goods, and street entertainment.

It will run from 10.30am to 5pm each week, and pitches are priced at just £15, which includes a mains electricity supply.

Cllr Mark Watson, cabinet member for economy and jobs, said: “Central Croydon is incredibly busy every Sunday and we want small, independent traders to be able to capitalise on this by being able to make use of Surrey Street’s reputation as a long-standing and successful market.

“By bringing in a new mix of products we will help the market cater for a far wider range of tastes.”

All stall holders will need public liability insurance and any other necessary licenses.
