Furious traders are taking council bosses to court after Lancaster market was shut early amid fears of a protest.
The market had been due to close on Tuesday in a bid to stem heavy losses.
Trader Chris Green, the third generation of his family to sell baby clothes from his stall, said he had been left with £1,500 of stock which he had expected to sell in his final three days of trading.
He said: “It is a complete lack of regard for our contract.
“The market had been due to close on Friday but we agreed with the council to move that forward to Tuesday to allow them to get started on work and the next thing we heard was 10 minutes before we were due to shut on Saturday that we were closing for the final time.
