All Mendip Markets closed until further notice.

Mendip District Council has regrettably suspended all MendipMarkets with immediate effect. The markets played a vital role in providing essential goods to communities during the initial weeks of the COVID19 outbreak. The Council tried to maintain a food-only market to support residents and traders, but did not have enough stall-holders available to trade to constitute a market. Therefore, a decision has been made to close the markets for the foreseeable future. The Council wishes to thank the public for supporting MendipMarkets so enthusiastically and looks forward to a time when they can reopen again, to serve their communities.
