There is something rather special about wandering around a market, particularly if the market you have chosen includes a food stall or somewhere to buy a cup of tea or coffee so that you can sit or stand and watch the world go by.
In our area we have a variety of choices from standard street markets to farmers market , markets selling Antiques and markets selling vintage goods and more.
So if you want to know just where to go and what to expect, take a wander through our guide to local markets.
If you run a market or know of a good market just contact us with some details to be included in this guide.
