What is Warwick Mop Fair?
We get asked every year by lots of people why Warwick Market closes for two weeks during October. This closure is because Waewick Mop Fair comes into town. So here's some history about Warwick Mop...
Jamie Walker of CJ's Events Warwickshire said: We are working closely with all relevant authorities to monitor COVID-19 and are taking any necessary precautions to ensure the health, safety and wellbeing of our customers, traders and staff, but for now, it is business as usual.
'Independent businesses are facing unprecedented times. In an already challenging retail environment, COVID-19 has presented yet another challenge for our traders. We encourage visitors to continue to shop at the markets and support our traders through this difficult time. The markets continue to be stocked with a range of fresh produce, pies, meat, and fish. You can also pick up essential items such as baked goods and even cleaning products.
'We are working and briefing traders with ways in which they can help stop the spread of the virus. The advantage of our markets is there are very little queues, no large crowds and are held in open air spaces.
Kenilworth market runs every Thursday at Abbey End from 9am until 4pm, with Warwick running every Saturday in Market Square from 9am until 4pm.
