Broadway Market just launched a 12-week trial for a brand new food market with stalls serving meals and drinks from around the world.

Since its reopening in August customers have been encouraged to use hand sanitiser or gloves and to keep their distance while browsing.

The new venture kicks off with a six-week trial of the food market on Fridays, beginning October 2, from 2-8pm, followed by another six-week trial of the market on Sundays, beginning in November.

The new trading day will then be decided based on customer, trader and local resident feedback via an online survey.

You may also want to watch:

Broadway Market’s reopening in August did not include hot food traders so the new market dedicated to hot food will mean those traders can return to their stalls, having not done so since March.

The new market will also provide an opportunities to expand in the future.
