February 27, 2012 South Kesteven District Council
Grantham is set to get a new weekday fruit and vegetable stall in its recently re-developed Market Place.
SKDC confirms that its initiative in encouraging weekday street traders has borne fruit – with other traders showing interest and hopefully to follow.
The fruit and veg trader, new to Grantham shoppers, will have his stall near the Gravity public house from Tuesday to Friday between 7am and 4pm. It will be removed every night.
Consultation with local shops, highways and the Grantham Business Club has given the stall the green light. It’s one of five weekday pitches being made available by the council, each of which will only be allowed if there is no conflict with existing local traders.
Cllr Frances Cartwright, Cabinet portfolio holder for economic development and planning, said it was excellent news. “Anything that brings new life and activity to our town centre is welcome. We have invested heavily in creating an attractive feature of our ancient Market Place, and weekday street traders can only add to that.
“Fruit and vegetables are a major reason why people visit a market, so to have a stall on this extremely accessible area of town should be popular and attract people. I really hope that once other traders see this first trader they will follow suit.”
