In the wake of Saturday’s successful market the Council has said that it wants the event to become a regular feature of life on the west of York..
However the proposed terms of an amendment to an ancient charter – which restricts the number of markets that can be held near Newgate – says the Acomb Market will take place on a Friday.
There is also some confusion about whether the market will be on the last Friday/Saturday in each month or the fourth Fri/Sat.
Markets are currently planned for:
- 26th November (Saturday)
- 7th December (Wednesday) – with evening stalls in Gateway
- 16th December (Friday)
& then on the fourth Saturday in each month
Traders wishing to have a stall should contact the organisers “The Market Managers” Tel 07843 012629 or 07919 112332 https://www.facebook.com/The-Market-Managers
It’s 34 years since a campaign was launched to improve shopping facilities in the Acomb Front Street area.
A new supermarket came many years ago but it was not until the independent Acomb Alive traders group arrived that a street market actually took off.
The market is open until 3:00pm today (Saturday)
