What about if I want to buy?

There are different prices depending on what time you wish to enter to buy.

The main opening time for buyers is 11am each week.

Entry after 11am costs 50p per person.

You can also enter the site early from 9am at a cost of £3 per person.

Entering between 10am and 11am costs £1 per person.

All under 16s can visit the sale free of charge.

Buyers money is taken as they enter the site so residents should have the correct change available if possible.

What else do I need to know?

There is strictly no buying or selling before 9am.

Sellers will have time to set up before the first customers are allowed to begin buying at 9am.

The boot sale takes place on concrete so there is no need for wellies, even in the winter months.
