Resolve a problem with a purchase or with a trader Toggle accordion

Should any problem arise with your purchases, the law entitles you to certain protections:

  • goods sold as new must not be faulty and must work satisfactorily
  • goods must be safe and fit for the purpose for which they were sold
  • goods must be as they are described verbally, on the label, on the packaging, or otherwise
  • services must be as described and carried out in a proper manner with the provider using reasonable skill and care and carried out within a reasonable time and at a reasonable price

However, you are not legally entitled to compensation or redress if:

  • you have changed your mind over the colour, style, size &c. of the item, seen a cheaper product elsewhere, or have no further use for the goods
  • the product contained defects which were made known to you at the time of purchase or as described by a notice
  • the items have been mistreated or used for a purpose for which they were not intended

If you are not satisfied with the goods or services that you have received from a trader whilst shopping at a St Albans market, you should do the following:

  1. Approach the trader concerned, taking with you any proof of purchase, ask to speak to them in private, and explain the problem quietly and calmly. Normally, the problem is resolved at this stage.
  2. If you cannot remember the stall that you bought the goods from or cannot reach an agreement with the trader, please contact the Market management team on and a member of the market team will assist you.

For more information, please see our Market Rules and Code of Conduct December 2022 edition.
