Ely is to double the number of market days from three a week to six.

With the aim of making the market more ‘eco-friendly’ with a local approach to shopping, a new series of ‘mini markets’ have been introduced.

They will take place on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Fridays and feature stalls selling fruit, vegetables, coffee and bread.

The new markets begin on Tuesday April 3 and will trade from 8.30am to 3.30pm.

On Wednesday April 4 there will be a launch day to coincide with the Easter school holiday.

There will be extra stalls, activities and the chance to meet Michael Recycle, Ely’s local eco-hero, and to win an Ely Markets “Bring Your Own” goody bag.

Julia Davis, of Ely Markets, said: “We want to make our markets more useful and convenient than ever before.

“If people in Ely choose to make a few small changes to the way they shop then together we can make a big difference.”
