Ludlow Town council has now cancelled the market. Reduced stalls, non-food markets cancelled. But you can still get a cup of tea. That’s the future of Ludlow Market during the coronavirus crisis. This is vital. Not everyone wants to shop at a supermarket. Not everyone feels comfortable with crowded aisles and queues to the checkout. Many people prefer to buy from independent traders rather than the international retail giants. Ludlow Market will be a socially distanced market from Wednesday. Only every second stall used. I observed behaviour in town today. It was very different from that even on Saturday. People stood at a respectful distance.
