Stall owners in Basingstoke have said they have been forced to stop trading on their most lucrative day to make way for a farmers’ market.
The council said the current town centre market was “not thriving” and that residents wanted a “better” one.

Butcher Phil Howe said the last Saturday was the busiest because “people get paid monthly and they come and bulk buy from us”.
