The Romsey Tuesday, Friday and Saturday Markets have been closed until further notice.
The Food Stalls would be allowed under current Government advise, however as a small market we have no dedicated staff to ensure we keep our traders and customers safe.
With our wider responsibility for Town Centre Management we do not wish to run an activity that might encourage a crowd to form, however small, in what is a confined space
We know this is an inconvenience to traders and customers but our priority is to join the battle to stop COVID-19 and help protect the NHS.
We look forward to reopening the market as soon as sensible to do so, in the meantime please keep yourselves and your families safe.

Cornmarket, Romsey every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday from 8am to 3pm
There has been a market in Romsey for over 400 years which was originally operated under Royal Charter granted in 1607. Rights to hold the markets are retained by the owners of Broadlands Estate as "Lord of the Manor". On 2nd May 2019 Romsey Town Council announced the signing of a new agreement to ensure a successful future for Romsey Market. The agreement allows the market to operate under the joint management of Romsey Town Council and Bradbeers for the next 15 years.
