Re-open Cambridge Market for essential food supplies!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


Essential foods such as fruit and vegetables, meat, fish and bread need to be available for people to buy through as many safe ways as possible during the COVID-19 pandemic. Cambridge Market stalls being outside in the fresh air and accessible without doorways, corridors or aisles to navigate mean that this location is a very safe way to shop in the current climate. People can approach the stalls on the periphery of the market square, where essential foods are located, from a wide range of angles, easily viewing and avoiding potential congestion through simple common sense. This is not the case when using an indoor supermarket or food shop.

We petition Cambridge City Council to reverse its decision to close the Market such that essential foods stalls can continue to trade immediately.
