St Andrews market is currently closed.
The market will be a little different from what we are used to until further restrictions are lifted, but we know you understand it’s only temporary and a requirement to keep us all safe.
During our first stage of reopening only permanent, stalls on our priority casual list or a long association with the market will be able to attend and must have committee approval in advance.
Unfortunately, there will be no casual bookings on market day until further notice.
All stalls (permanents included) need to email us at: email@example.com (not via facebook) or text: 0467 535 34.
We will forward the temporary terms and conditions (nothing to be worried about) so you can agree and return them.
Due to social distancing there will be temporary changes to stall sites and reallocation options will be confirmed when committee receive your acceptance to the temporary terms and conditions.
We can’t wait to see you all again, even if it’s going to be a different market for a while to what we are all used to
