Horsham’s Thursday markets return
30 Sep 2020
Horsham District Council in partnership with Horsham town market operators Food Rocks are pleased to announce that the Thursday markets are returning to the Carfax from Thursday 1 October.
Reacting to the feedback from user surveys, a small but high quality choice of street food and fresh produce stalls will occupy the Carfax bandstand area each Thursday in October as a pilot. If successful, it is hoped to extend the trial for subsequent Thursdays.
All traders and their pre-order details are available on the Horsham Markets website.
"If we can generate sufficient custom we would love to return to Thursday Markets as a permanent feature.
With so many people now working from home, we are encouraging workers to have a break and pop in to town for some exciting hot street food offers and fresh local produce.
"To give everyone a chance to fit a visit to the market in with their busy schedules our traders all now offer click and collect and for the first time an early evening take away menu."
Food Rocks Director, Simon Teasdale
"It’s great that Horsham Markets are back on Thursdays and building on the highly successful click and collect and home delivery services they operated at the height of the COVID-19 lockdown.
I urge people to come into Horsham town to try some of this great street food on Thursdays while they can.
Horsham District Council Cabinet Member for the Local Economy, Cllr Paul Clarke
“The return of Thursday markets is very welcome indeed and very much adds to the atmosphere of a market town like Horsham.
"I look forward to seeing as many people as possible both during the daytime and in the early evening, taking the time to sample the many goods on offer.”
Cllr Peter Burgess, Cabinet Member for Horsham Town Centre
