Cardiff Market is temporarily reducing its opening hours as essential food traders continue to focus on providing home delivery services during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The Market will now only open to the public on Saturday morning’s, from 8am until midday.
Entrance and exit is via the Trinity Street entrance, so that the market team can control the number of customers entering the building and ensure a safe queuing system.
Cabinet Member for Investment and Development, Cllr Russell Goodway said: “Low footfall in the city centre during the ongoing lockdown has had an obvious impact on footfall at the market.”
“These temporary changes will allow the traders to maintain their focus on the delivery side of their businesses, free up council staff for other duties, and make sure those who do want to shop at the market, can continue to do so.”
Traders remaining open are:
