Market photo

Originally the market took place on Sundays but was changed to Tuesdays in the early thirteenth century. Over the years it has seen a wide assortment of goods bought and sold such as cattle, arable crops, grain, coal, fertiliser and salt. 

It is still an integral part of the town with markets taking place on Tuesdays and community events taking place throughout the year.

As we are only a small market, we operate a no competition policy on general market days.  This means that each stall will not be in competition with another.
