Market Flyer - May 2017

Lymington Charter Market is a traditional market, established in 1250.

When the town was given a Charter (a document granting certain rights to the people of the town), this enabled Medieval Lymington to hold its own market.  Farmers, traders and merchants would come from far and wide to sell their goods.

The High Street was deliberately designed to be wide enough for a market to be held regularly.  Nowadays, there are 100+ stalls along Lymington High Street every Saturday from 8am until late, which is popular with local residents, visitors and tourists alike.
