MP Wera Hobhouse was delighted that a swift solution was found to re-site the Bath Farmers’ Market while the Green Park Station glass canopy roof undergoes repairs.
Starting this Saturday 1st May, the weekly market will be located at the Green Park Car Park, the former coach park in Avon Street, just a short walk from its long-standing home in Green Park Station.
Wera Hobhouse said:
“My office has received a number of emails from traders and residents about this local issue. I want to praise Acting Leader BANES Council Leader Cllr Richard Samuel and his team for their determination to find a workable, central location so quickly. It is a confirmation of how much we value Bath Farmers’ Market and all that it stands for. Supporting our local growers and traders is so important for our community and our economy, particularly as we emerge from the worst of the pandemic.
“Both Bath Farmers’ Market and I urged Sainsbury’s to show goodwill and find an alternative site, but without success. Well done to the Council for achieving this result.”
