A Market Town that still loves its Markets
Abingdon-on-Thames is a market town that still enjoys the unique atmosphere of a lively market. Our town centre boasts one of the most fit-for-purpose Market Places in the country, run by the Town Council. As well as the many community events and stalls that pop up here on a regular basis, there are markets, farmers’ markets and craft fairs on a weekly, monthly, quarterly and annual cycle.
The Council operates a number of commercial markets – the weekly Monday Charter market and the monthly Farmers’ Market that takes place on the third Friday of the month. Local Excellence Markets also take place throughout the year and are organised by the Abingdon Chamber of Commerce. For more information please see here.
The Market Place is available for use by local community groups to give out information, who have charitable purposes or who operate on a not-for-profit basis. In order to use the Market Place for an event you need to make a booking with the Town Council well in advance. For more information and booking forms please see here.
