Ramsgate market will return to the town next Friday (August 14).

Trading hours will be Friday and Saturday, 9am -4pm at the Staffordshire Street car aprk.

Stall will take over the Blue Badge bays for a month’s trial, with all blue badge holders welcome to park anywhere else in the car park free of charge.

The market shut when covid restrictions in March. It briefly reopened in June but issues around placement meant the market closed again. A new site proposed for Pier Yard car park on the seafront was scuppered at the 11th hour last month when Thanet council and market organiser Hughmark could not agree on the location.

It has now been announced by Ramsgate’s Town Promoter that agreement has been reached.

  1. Thanet council couldn’t agree on anything.The most disorganised council Ive ever known
    Are they afraid they might have to work half hour extra if they agree on something,and not be home for TEA TIME

  2. I expect it was to do with social distancing as that area becomes very crowded before adding a market area. There should be more room in a car park to spread out.
