New Market to launch in Harworth and Bircotes

A brand new weekly market will be launched in Harworth and Bircotes this month offering a range of fresh produce and products not currently available on its High Street.

The new market will be launched on Tuesday 22nd of September taking place between 9am and 1pm and located on the recently created Civic Square off Scrooby Road.

The variety of stalls already confirmed for the first market will boast fresh produce including Fruit, Vegetables and Fresh Fish, Women’s and Men’s Clothing and Fashion, Pamper Products including bath bombs and ladies accessories.

Cllr Jo White, Cabinet Member for Regeneration at Bassetlaw District Council, said;

“We’re excited to launch a brand new market and offer visitors and residents in Harworth and Bircotes even more choice on what is already a healthy and thriving high street.

“Residents and visitors have previously told us that a market in the town would be welcomed and this is also an opportunity to support market traders in what is currently a difficult environment.

“We have also been mindful not to attract traders who might duplicate what is already on offer on the high street and take custom away from established businesses.”

The new market is being run in conjunction with Harworth and Bircotes Town Council and Chairman, Cllr June Evans, added: “The Town Council welcomes the creation of a new market that will be perfectly at home on the town’s recently created and multi-purpose Civic Square.

“We believe the market will be a positive contribution to the rejuvenation of the high street; furthermore, this is another step towards meeting the needs of our thriving community and supporting the regeneration of the town.

“Though Covid-19 restrictions currently limit the number of market stalls, I want to encourage residents and visitors to shop locally and support the high street - something which is especially important at this difficult time.”

The Market in Harworth and Bircotes will add to Bassetlaw District Council’s already popular markets that include:

Harworth and Bircotes – Every Tuesday

Retford Markets – Every Thursday, Friday (Antiques and Collectables) and Saturday

Worksop Markets – Every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday
