Lymington’s Charter Market takes place every Saturday in the bustling High Street from 8am to 4pm and is one of the New Forest’s hidden gems. It’s a superb day out, with stalls ranging from plants, local food produce, household goods, and craft items.
The Market was originally granted a Charter (a document providing certain rights to the people of the town) in the mid-13th Century, which enabled Medieval Lymington to hold its own market. Farmers, traders and merchants would come from far and wide to sell their goods. This is still true of today’s traders.
There are approximately 100 stalls every week selling a manner of edible treats from olives, breads, cakes, fudge, pies, fruit and vegetables to take home with you. Don’t forget a cool bag to bring back local fish, cheeses and meats too. There is something to suit all budgets, whether looking for a hand crafted gift for a loved one or a special souvenir of your trip. Look no further than Lymington’s market for jewellery, bric-a-brac, clothes, shoes, plants and bedding. It is all there!
