Ely markets see trader increase

Markets in Cambridgeshire have seen an increase in the number of traders, a council has said.

Earlier in the year East Cambridgeshire District Council looked at the future funding of Ely's markets and how to improve them.

Now traders at the Saturday market must pay for the erection of stalls as part of the changes.

The council said six new traders had joined the markets since August and several more were on trials.

Councillor Peter Cresswell said: "A successful market is a mixture of many things from great produce to excellent service and the knowledge a bargain can be found.

"Ely Markets has all of these attributes and more which makes their future incredibly exciting and we hope prosperous."
