The Saturday market is a pilot project of the Roman Road Trust . Starting this Saturday it will run over the Summer months. The market will be called Roman Road Yard Market and it will specialise in unique wares including vintage, collectables, mid-century and music, as well as locally produced or handmade arts, crafts and fashion. The new Yard Market won’t be selling fresh produce as there are plans to develop this into the main street market.
