New street market in Hailsham starts today

The first of a regular street market selling locally produced items and unique gifts is taking place in Vicarage Field today (Saturday August 24).

The introduction of the new market is just one of a number of projects being carried out by Hailsham Forward (Town Team) in partnership with the TownCouncil and local Chamber of Commerce to help revitalise the town centre.

The new street market will be open between 9.30am and 3pm on the third Saturday and every second and fourth Thursday of each month, until Saturday December 21.

After this, the market set-up will be reviewed before opening again in March 2014. There will be around 20 market stalls at next Saturday’s market.
