The antiques market had been on hold due to the coronavirus pandemic but will restart with safety measures in place on the bank holiday weekend.

Social distancing measures, including a one in-one out system at entry on Northampton Road, a revised layout and hand sanitiser stations, will be in place.

Cllr Phil King, Leader of Harborough District Council, said: “We are really pleased that we are able to run the Sunday Antiques Market again, albeit with a reduced layout. We look forward to restrictions lifting even further which will see a return for more antiques businesses and more opportunities for the public to re-use, recycle and re-purpose some fantastic products.”

The return of the Sunday Antiques Market also sees the launch of a new Sunday carvery at the Market Café.

Café owner, Kris Moore said: “We are really excited for the return of the Sunday Market and will be launching our new Sunday carvery menu using market produce, including meat from John Ross and Son Butchers. We have used the lockdown period to adjust our menu with a focus on fresh, local, market ingredients, so we can’t wait to get some feedback from Sunday visitors.”
