Piotr Kedra, who works at Thee Olive Tree stall every Tuesday and Saturday at Salisbury Charter Market, said “I have spoken to a few of the traders and we are very grateful for the Council’s continued support during the past year.”
Councillor Sven Hocking, chairman of the Council’s Services Committee said, “The City Council know how important the Market is to the City and are happy to give this support. We are keen to work with traders to ensure the Charter Market is well attended and well promoted and are also aware our traders are still having a difficult time in light of recent events. So if you haven’t been to the Market lately come and have a look and give your support too”.
