Brand New Ross-on-Wye Spring Market

by | Apr 6, 2021 | Event Information, News

We look forward to welcoming visitors to a brand new Spring Market in Ross-on-Wye on Saturday 17th and Sunday 18th April 2021. Situated in Caroline Symonds Gardens with plenty of space for social distancing, the Ross-on-Wye Spring Market will provide a relaxing outdoor shopping experience. Visitors will be able to choose from a wide selection of freshly prepared street foods, artisan grocery products, arts, crafts, clothing and accessories or enjoy a craft beer from the Famous Last Stand bar. This will be a vibrant, colourful market, with extra sanitation measures as well as social distancing in place to help ensure that it is also safe for people to enjoy at this time.

Situated in beautiful green surroundings, not far from local independent shops, you will find delicious handmade street foods from around the world including pork or chicken souvlaki, fajitas, burritos, churros plus Thai and Chinese dishes. There will be an outdoor seating area for alfresco dining with distanced tables and queuing systems for the bar and food outlets. A range of artisan groceries from continental fine foods, old English fudge, olives and Turkish delight to award winning flavoured waxed cheese truckles will be available to take away and enjoy. As well as foodie treats, there will be an array of stalls selling unique arts, crafts, clothing and accessories providing shoppers an opportunity to find unusual items for the home or gifts for friends and family.

Ed O’Driscoll, Ross-on-Wye Town Council’s Tourism Committee Chair, commented: ‘We are delighted that visitors will now safely be able to visit Ross-on-Wye and with lockdown restrictions easing, we hope the Spring Market will give our community something to enjoy as the weather improves. Our priority is to keep the town safe so we still need to maintain social distancing and care when out and about so that we can enjoy the summer months ahead.”

The Ross-on-Wye Spring Market will be open on Saturday 17th April 9am – 5pm and Sunday 18th April 10am – 5pm. Stay tuned to our social media profiles and website for regular updates as the market gets closer!
