Market is only once every two months

How ridiculous for some shops in Petworth to complain their businesses are being detrimentally affected by a few stallholders of the farmers’ market.

The market is only held once for five hours every two months.

To complain about smells of a hot stall shows a lack of tolerance: what about other smells in the town, like the deli cooking (delicious), fish and chips smell, and Indian curry smells – all to lure the people into Petworth to buy their goods!

To have the farmers’ market must surely be good for Petworth overall, being an historic market town.
