Guildford’s farmers’ market will return to the High Street on Tuesday, March 30 from 10.30am to 3.30pm offering delicious food and drink from local producers.

Guildford Borough Council says the market will only be selling essential items, in line with government restrictions.

The council’s strategic services director, Dawn Hudd, added: “We are so happy to see the return of our farmers’ market for its 21st year. There will be safety measures in place and it is important that visitors continue to keep social distancing, wear face coverings and wash their hands regularly.

”This is a one-off date and we hope that our farmers’ market will then return to its usual slot on the first Tuesday of the month from May 4.”

Guildford has been known as a market town for centuries despite not having a market square. Various markets have been held at different sites around town.

The earlier cattle markets were originally held on the High Street, but they were relocated to North Street in 1865 as there were problems with noise and traffic. The cattle market then moved to a purpose-built market in Woodbridge Road in 1896, before moving to Slyfield in 1969 until its closure in May 2000.
