Our new look Car Boot Sale is Socially Distanced Compliant to comply with government regulations for open market and control flow. This is a legal requirement of our insurance and please respect the fact that you may find it is run differently from before.
Where? As you drive into Farmer Palmers Drive go into the second field on your right.
Sellers drive on the right up into the top field.
Buyers turn left in the field and drive up into the next field. The buyer’s gate is on the left side of the field.
Our team is there to guide you into your selling space. Buyers, please respect their guidance. They are good-hearted people who will do their best to uphold the standards set.
Sellers – please arrive early, GATES OPEN by 7 am, the charge is £7 per vehicle for your 6m x 10m pitch. Double pitches available.
Buyers – please arrive from 7.45 am when the Buyers Gate will open. This is different from the seller’s traffic gate. No charge for entry, free parking, refreshments and toilets available.
We will still be there. It will be your responsibility to check the weather and decide to come.
So this summer we will open our gates to baaaargain hunters and super sellers! It’s a great reason to have a clear-out at home, make some space, and make a few £s too! Or use it as an opportunity to teach children how to make pocket money.
Please watch our facebook page for more info and dates.
