Markets are bringing more people into Wiltshire’s towns according to a recent survey by Conservative-run Wiltshire Council.
Nearly 50 percent of those surveyed confirmed they would not have made the journey to the town had it not been for the market. The survey was completed at a number of the Wiltshire Council-run markets, and led to some extremely positive feedback. In addition, more than 95 percent of respondents said they were very satisfied or satisfied with their local markets. The questions covered all aspects of the market experience including the variety of goods on offer, quality and the product price.
Wiltshire Council’s cabinet member for markets, Dick Tonge (Conservative), said:
“This recent survey shows that residents of Wiltshire really value and use their local markets, the markets are great assets to their communities. It is also proof that markets encourage people to visit the town’s they are held in.”
