A HISTORIC outdoor market is “bucking the trend” with profits of £40,000 forecast for the current financial year.
While other markets across the UK are feeling the financial pinch, Sudbury Town Council expects to generate an income of £78,000 from the weekly market – which is believed to have been running for more than 500 years. About 20 stall-holders – including one from Lowestoft and another from Harlow – turned out on Thursday to trade in below-freezing temperatures. Town clerk Sue Brotherwood said the flourishing enterprise was doing better than it had ever done.
But some of the long-standing traders would like to see the council reinvest more of the profits into the market.
