Overview
More
The Market was originally given a Charter (a document granting certain rights to the people of the town) in the mid-13th Century, which enabled Medieval Lymington to hold its own market. Farmers, traders and merchants would come from far and wide to sell their goods. This is still true of today's traders. The High Street was deliberately designed to be wide enough for a market to be held regularly. Nowadays and this can still be seen in the current striking Georgian architecture that lines both sides of the High Street from the Quay in the East and up to St Thomas' Church which holds a commanding position in the West. There are 100+ stalls every Saturday from 8am until 4pm, which is popular with local residents, visitors and tourists alike.

A lovely street market. So many differing stalls with plenty of bargains. Old fashioned maybe but in a very nice good humoured way.

Popped over to the market from Isle of Wight. Wasn't overly impressed with market as traffic was still using the road. Other than that standard market but in a lovely setting.

Running up both sides of the street with restricted car access during the day there all sorts of stalls. Much local produce and also craft stalls. A good day out and Lymington has more to offer like the Town Quay and St Barbes Museum.
