Our Market

In 1285, Edward I granted the village of Shipbourne permission to hold a weekly market. In May 2003 the Parochial Church Council re-inaugurated the market.



Our objective is to provide a focus for the community and a retail outlet for small local producers. The Market is run entirely by volunteers. Any surplus made by the market is donated to Agricultural charities.

We also operate a  ‘CLICK and COLLECT' system whereby you can see stallholders' produce in detail, order items, pay for them and then just pick it up from the Stallholder at the Market. Click [Here]
