Important Update on Beeston Markets

01/07/20 - Broxtowe Borough Council has been informed that the current operators of the weekly market in Beeston will cease operating. The monthly farmers markets are not affected by this change.

“I was deeply saddened to learn that the current operators of Beeston Market feel that they can no longer continue.This will be very disappointing for customers, and a major blow to stall holders who depend on local markets to make a living.Councillor Tim Hallam

“We hope to offer a solution quickly, but it’s impossible to make any promises with resources already stretched to breaking-point. Local Government funding just isn’t sufficient to mitigate the damage of COVID-19.

“Staff at Broxtowe Borough Council are working extremely hard to find a new operator, whilst we also investigate the viability of bringing local markets into temporary Council care.” Councillor Tim Hallam, Chair of the Jobs and Economy Committee.
