The Waterside Upmarket will be returning on Sunday, April 18 featuring a range of street food as well as stalls selling a mix of lines including arts and crafts, homeware, jewellery, clothing, gifts and much more.
Dermot McGillicuddy, operational director from LSD Promotions, which organises the markets in the town, said: "We are so pleased to be returning to Stratford-upon-Avon after so many months and I know our traders are as well.
"There are so many traders who are eager to get back to business including some new ones, and will be selling a whole host of high-quality products.
"Safety is of course paramount, so we have a number of measures in place to keep traders and shoppers protected.
"We look forward to welcoming shoppers back safely to all of our markets this weekend and over the coming weeks and months as we get back to some sort of normality."
The market will have a number of Covid-19 secure measures in operation including hand sanitiser stations.
Councillor Ian Shenton, portfolio holder for operations at Stratford District Council, said: "After so many months it is fantastic to see the markets preparing to begin once again in Stratford-upon-Avon. We are thrilled that we are welcoming traders back and we hope that shoppers come out and support them once again."
