THE future of a once-thriving farmers’ market hangs in the balance as just two stalls remain.
After more than a decade of trading, the butcher, a baker, a cheese maker and a French tart stall have all gone from Reigate in recent months, with more than 20 traders lost in the last three years.
It leaves only Reigate Beekeepers in the High Street and McCarthy’s bread stall in Tunnel Road.
Stuart Cross of Hughmark Continental, the company which runs the market, said: “The people of Reigate do not support the market. It’s as simple as that.”
The farmers’ market in Tunnel Road on every fourth Friday of the month, has been a feature in Reigate for more than 10 years.
Stallholder Florin Rebrean of McCarthy’s bakery said on Friday: “There really isn’t much future for this market with the way things are going here. I have no regular customers and took just £200 today and I have all this bread left, which will all just go in the bin.
“If the council don’t do something to help and support us, like more advertising, there won’t be a market here any more.”
