New Market Today

There is a new market on the Market Place today. Traditionally Market Day is Monday in Abingdon. But this Market is on a Friday.

The Farmers Market will be held from now on, on the third Friday of Every Month. There are a few more stalls than when they were at Old Station Yard on Monday.

A lot of working people would have preferred a Saturday, but Friday is a day when it is probably easier to get enough stall holders to make it workable,

and at the same people, shopping for the weekend, can make it worthwhile.

It looks as if you took these photos very early in the morning - there is no-one around! I was there mid-morning and it was very busy. It was good to see all (I think) of the Monday stalls plus a few new ones. Next month's market is just before Christmas which is brilliant - I was making mental shopping lists as I went round.

Thanks Hester, Yes I had to go to work, and so could only pop in quickly. But if you or anybody else has any better pictures just send them. That offer is always open.

"Its been open a month" No! It's been open... Please check your grammar.

Ah, Backstreeter. You work your backside off, creating a wonderful piece of social history, and someone has a go at your grammar!
