Borough Market to reopen on Wednesday

Related tags: Borough market

Borough Market is to reopen on Wednesday morning with a minute’s silence for the victims of the terrorist attack on 3 June.

Traders will link arms at 10am before the market bell will ring to signal the opening of the stalls.

Donald Hyslop, chair of the Trustees of Borough Market, said Wednesday would mark the beginning of a ‘healing process’ for the community.

Opening hours are expected to be extended over the next two weeks with the market opening on Sunday 18 June and 25 June to help businesses affected by the closure.

“While the victims of last week’s terror attack will never be forgotten, and while the trauma experienced by this community will weigh heavily for a long time to come, it is essential for the wellbeing of everyone associated with Borough Market that we return to at least a semblance of normality as soon as we can,” said Hyslop.

Traders will continue raising money for the Red Cross UK Solidarity Fund, with Gourmet Goat planning to give away pots of koliva – a dish of wheat berries, spices and mint – in exchange for a donation.

The market has also launched a crowdfunding campaign​ to support businesses and workers who have suffered financial losses during the market’s 10 day closure.
