Sketts have been closely monitoring the situation and statistics with regards to reopening the market.  Public Health England considers Sandwell a “cause for concern” and it remains on the government watch list with the R factor still high. In addition, the indoor market was also becoming increasingly unviable due to unfair competition with surrounding authority run markets offering subsidies to traders.  Together with expensive break-ins and Covid 19, we feel that currently the market has come to its natural end.  We have been in communication with the full time traders, most of which have found alternative arrangements with other markets in the area.  We have also kept our website up to date for adhoc traders and the general public.  We keep the option of reopening under constant review.

TRADERS;  there is a discretionary grant that you may be eligible for via Sandwell Council and we strongly suggest you apply which should financially help.  The government has specifically listed Market Traders should be considered.
