Wells market - every Wednesday and Saturday, 9am till 2pm
Covid-19: Mendip District Council fully recognises the importance of its outdoor markets, and the ability for communities to shop in these open-air environments.
There has been an expected decrease in trader numbers and footfall over recent weeks and months, as such we are adjusting our market opening times slightly - but will remain open daily.
All weekday markets will run as normal, but with slightly reduced hours 9am-12 noon. There will be no markets on Saturdays.
- Wednesday: Wells Market 9am-12pm
- Saturday: No markets at Wells or Frome
To help support Mendip's market traders and customers during Covid-19 restrictions, some of our regular traders are also able to offer an online service:
