In case you’ve missed it, here are the quick facts:

  • All access cards expire annually on 30 April each year.
  • Renewal invoices are being sent to all Market businesses in the coming week.
  • Be sure to pay your invoice by the due date to roll over all current access cards and secure your access to the Market.
