Welcome to Market Drayton Livestock Market


However, due to the severity and reality of this situation we are currently facing as a nation and how we combat the Coronavirus, Market Drayton Market will have to implement several changes to its day to day structure of the market.

In our attempt to exercise due diligence and implement best practise in the work place we need to operate in a sterile and bio-secure way to safeguard you our valued clients, staff and the future of our industry, the following steps will have to be implemented.

1. If you are showing symptoms of the Coronavirus please stay at home and self-isolate.

2. Please uterlise hand sanitizers and keep hands clean.

3. From immediate effect we will be operating a "DROP & GO SERVICE" - Market Staff will unload livestock & collect paperwork - vendors not permitted to enter the building.  

4. Please can all vendors have their paperwork filled out, passports and licenses signed.  Any issues of luck money can be sorted via the office and no luck to be given from the rostrum or point of sale.

5. In line with Government advice it is recommended and requested the following do not attend :-  Any person that knowingly ill, those 70 and over, ladies who are pregnant plus children/family members.

6. All stall holders and rural hub merchants have suspended trade from our facilities and should you need anything from these business please contact them directly – we are happy to supply phone numbers. 

7. Buyers observe suitable space around the sale rings or point of sale and immunise contact.

We apologise this is a dramatic realisation to the social and rural hub we have to try to promote at Market Drayton Market. Unfortunately dramatic situations call for dramatic action and our attempt to keep Market Drayton Market operating as a livestock market.
Thank you.
