Market traders from Watford are not all being offered stalls when the market relocates, in a move that has been described as “ripping the heart out of Watford”.
Council planners signed-off plans last year to move the market to the car park of the TJ Hughes building off High Street in September. Along with moving outdoors, the market will run five days a week rather than three.
The new market will have space for around 40 permanent stalls and will be managed by Town and Country Markets.
The move has not gone down well with market traders, some of whom want to move but haven’t been given stalls.
Margaret Beresford has owned ‘Little Knits’ for seven years. The stall sells handmade children’s toys and clothing.
She said she would not be moving, and descried the move was “ripping the heart out of Watford”.
The 69-year-old said: “The council is putting pounds before people, and a lot of us will be out of work.
