COVID-19 Update – All City Property Markets remain open

At City Property Markets we remain committed to doing everything we can to continue supporting the health and wellbeing of our visitors, tenants and staff during these challenging times.

With the ongoing COVID-19 situation at the forefront of everyone’s mind, we wanted to take the time to assure you of the additional arrangements we are making, in line with the advice issued by the UK and Scottish Governments.

These measures will be for everyone’s safety as we continue to operate all Glasgow’s markets.

What are City Property Markets doing about the COVID-19 outbreak?

At City Property Markets, we are following government advice to minimise the risk of exposure to our employees and spread of the virus to our traders and visitors.

To do this, we are implementing the following measures across ALL City Property Markets and Car Boot Sale:

  • A new layout has been created to ensure the minimum social distance advised by the Government is maintained
  • We are putting into place, immediately, the halting of casual traders in order to decrease unessential trade. This means only pre-booked traders will be able to operate which will minimise casual buyers handling items from each stall, as well as, the transfer of money.
  • Food items will be either pre-packed or bagged directly by a trader
  • All staff will follow strict health and safety procedures which will involve the cleansing of all communal areas and the requirement to wear gloves
  • An additional sterilisation station will be available and we are currently in the process of purchasing additional sanitisers across each site
  • Staff will also be advising visitors to keep moving and to avoid congregation

Additionally, City Property Markets are engaged with the Markets Committee to manage the response to COVID-19, maintaining daily communications and updates to our traders, visitors and staff to ensure we remain fully compliant in our response. As such, we will continue to update our website as and when new protocols are implemented in line with new advice.

We will do our best to continue working as close to ‘business as usual’ as we can throughout this difficult time.
