Stall plans are generally drawn up and e-mailed out to traders on the Thursday afternoon/evening prior to the market. It should be noted that this is not a guarantee of your positioning on the market as last minute cancellations or other unforeseen events can result in last minute changes, though we will always do our best to ensure that any alteration is only a stall or 2 either side of what was allocated.
In terms of general allocation, we do move people round the market, unless there is a specific reason why certain traders need certain pitches (i.e. where they have perishable sock that may need to be sold off at the end of the day, or if there is a need to be out of the sun). You are always welcome to request certain positions though these cannot be guaranteed.
Gusting Wind Cancellations
Your health and safety and that of the general public is our number one concern and as we appreciate that some traders stock is quite fragile we have a system whereby, if the wind is forecast to be gusting above 25mph (according to the Met Office) on the Wednesday morning prior to the market, traders with vulnerable stock may cancel by close of business on the Wednesday and will only pay a £10 cancellation charge. If we cancel any market at the last minute due to gusting winds being forecast over 35mph (which is enough to move stalls) all money paid for it would be refunded, however we will firstly look to move the market to an indoors location (quite probably in the Kirkgate Shopping Centre), in which case no refund would be made. We do of course always try our best to keep traders informed of any weather issues as they develop, though would stress it is generally only strong winds that would see us cancel a market. If you have concerns please be sure to check the Met Office weather report in the time-frame outlined.
