Lymington Charter Market

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

High Street Market 2017

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 over 90 stalls along Lymington High Street every Saturday from 8am until late, which is popular with local residents, visitors and tourists alike.

Having a stall at the famous Lymington Charter Market is a great opportunity for a local business or small cottage industry.  Bespoke items, gifts, unique hand-made crafts and new food products are always welcome.
