FEARS have been raised about the death of Stroud High Street if a new operator is appointed to take over the town’s award-winning farmers’ market.
Many stallholders, shopkeepers and local politicians have reacted with fury after Stroud District Council announced it was putting the contract to run the town’s flagship market out to tender.
One bookstore owner has warned of a ‘devastating effect’ on the town centre if the farmers’ market, which was judged the best in the country this year, falls into the wrong hands, while another trader believes the tender process could spell the death of the High Street.
