We are delighted to announce that we are 'Good to Go' and ready to restart the Naturally North Coast and Glens Markets on the newly confirmed dates for our August Markets. Acquiring the Industry Standard 'Good to Go' Mark means that our market has followed government and industry COVID-19 guidelines, we have a Risk Assessment in place, as do our traders, and we have all implemented measures to maintain cleanliness and aid social distancing.

There will be some changes to the market you're used to visiting to ensure we can all follow the current guidance.

🔴 Traders will be practising social distancing

🔴 Contactless transactions will be available at most stalls, although they will also accept cash and will be following the appropriate handling and hand sanitizing requirements to ensure they maintain a high level of hygiene in interacting with all customers.
