Markets Reopen Safely

Blackburn & Darwen Markets are now open. 

Both Blackburn & Darwen Markets reopened their doors to customers on 15th June 2020.

Although the markets have been closed since the end of March, many of the stallholders have been able to continue trading by offering phone and online ordering, with home delivery and click & collect services, which have been praised by new and old customers alike. (See below for contact details of those offering home delivery)

The Council Team and traders have been working hard to make the markets “COVID-Secure” and customers at both markets will see some changes to ensure social distancing can be maintained and minimise the risks from coronavirus.

As well as continuing to follow social distancing, customers will also see other changes including one-way systems within the markets, which are clearly marked on the floors. To facilitate the one-way system, only one main entrance and exit will be used. Hand sanitation stations have been installed and staff will be available to assist and guide customers.

Full details of the changes at each market can be found on their websites and also on social media. Customers are encouraged to use social media to ask any questions they may have.
