Enjoy the Marketplace

Abingdon-on-Thames is a market town that still proudly upholds the tradition of the Market Place as a focus of town life. The Market Place is central, easily reached, and is the scene of important occasions like Bun-Throwings and music festivals but also of weekly and monthly markets, fairs and community events. On any day of the week it's a lovely place to drink a cappuccino in the sunshine, catch up with friends or plan a day out in the town and surrounding area.

The next in the popular Local Excellence markets is on 25th November. The Christmas Extravaganza, organised by the Abingdon-on-Thames Chamber of Commerce is on Saturday 2nd December.
