Market traders in the West Midlands say they face losing hundreds of pounds during public sector strikes next week.
Stall holders in Willenhall and Walsall have been told by Walsall council the markets will not operate on Wednesday.
Willenhall trader Chris Thompson said: “It’s probably our best day of the week. We have sympathy but don’t drag us in.”
