PETWORTH will become the home for farmers’ markets north of the Downs, after the Midhurst market was officially closed.
Chichester District Council cabinet took the decision on Tuesday morning (December 3), citing poor attendance and the market not breaking even.
“Where we are now could not be more in the public eye but there’s still not enough support from the public,” said cabinet member of the environment John Connor.
He added market traders in Midhurst were fed up with low attendance, saying one had told him: ‘I don’t know why I get out of bed to come to Midhurst in the morning – it’s a waste of time’.
Councillors decided the best solution is to close the bi-monthly Midhurst market and turn the bi-monthly Petworth market into a monthly fixture.
