As lockdown restrictions begin to ease, some St Albans and Harpenden shopping outlets are planning on reopening.

The St Albans farmers’ market is set to return this Sunday, June 14, at a reduced capacity with 25 traders in total.

Each stall will be spaced out along St Peter’s Street and into Market Place.

Following suit, the Harpenden farmers’ market will also make a comeback on June 28 on the common.

It will be operating a one-in one-out queuing system, and a full list of traders attending will be confirmed soon.

The Maltings Shopping Centre in St Albans will also be open from Monday.

It has been initiating measures such as one-way systems, floor stickers to mark social distancing rules, hand sanitation stations and increased cleaning.
