IT'S a market steeped in history – more than 750 years of it!

Medieval Lymington was first granted a charter in 1250, bestowing the people of the town with the right to hold a market.

Farmers, traders and merchants of varying goods would travel from far and wide to peddle their wares.

Seven and a half centuries later and not much has changed, with more than 100 stalls lining Lymington High Street every Saturday while not in lockdown.

The High Street was designed and built with the market in mind, the planners making sure it was wide enough to accommodate a regular market and the crowds it attracts.
