More than 1,500 people signed a petition on a single day to stop changes being made to the market in Bridgnorth High Street.
The petition was launched on Saturday after the town council revealed it was looking into bringing in new regulations.
Market traders fear their livelihoods could be under threat if the town council imposes uniform market stalls and enforces new health and safety regulations.
Bridgnorth Town Council says the changes are necessary because certain markets run in High Street – and also Meredith’s Yard – are “not being run legitimately”.
The authority has been given £50,000 by the Market Towns Revitalisation programme to set up electrical points and to buy ‘uniform’ stalls, which would be put up and dismantled by council staff.
