Croydon will soon have a Sunday market selling street food, artisan produce and vintage clothes as the council prepares to extend trading hours in Surrey Street.
Traders and entertainers have been urged to sign up for pitches in a new regular Sunday market which will start this September in Surrey Street.
The council is extending market trading to seven days a week as part of its plans to improve the area, with a focus on street food, homemade and artisan produce, arts and crafts, vintage and retro goods, and street entertainment.
Councillor Mark Watson, cabinet member for economy and jobs, said he wants small, independent traders to benefit from Sunday shoppers in Croydon town centre.
“By bringing in a new mix of products we will help the market cater for a far wider range of tastes,” he said.
Hundreds of thousands of pounds are set to be invested by the local authority before Christmas to make the market safer and more attractive.
The Sunday market will run from 10.30am to 5pm each week, and pitches are priced at just £15, which includes a mains electricity supply.
To avoid competing with the regular Monday-to-Saturday market no fruit or vegetable traders will be approved.
All stall holders will need public liability insurance and any other necessary licenses.
