Another popular market in South Oxfordshire has announced it will be staying open during the second lockdown, with a number of stalls aiming to provide 'essential' services in line with current government restrictions.

Residents hoping to fill their fridges with fresh food and their bellies with street snacks can visit Abingdon Farmers' Market on Friday, from 8.30am until 1.30pm.

A number of well-known local vendors, including craftworkers and retailers, will gather in the heart of the town to offer a lifeline to people.

Organisers behind Abingdon Farmers' Market, which also remained open during the first lockdown, introduced a number of strict measures to ensure the safety of visitors and workers.

These include a one-way system in operation, no samples of produce offered to people and use of contactless payments.

All traders will also be required to wear face coverings at all times.

Those hoping to have a lunch-on-the-go will also not be able to consume any food or drinks at the market as they will be fully wrapped up for takeaway purposes only.

Organisers warned that they are required legally to disperse any groups larger than six.

In a post on social media residents were invited to still make the trip to Market Place: "We have got some great local producers for you offering the best quality, local food and drink in a safe and welcoming location.

"If you are healthy and well and in need of food supplies, then come down to the market."
