In 1285, Edward I granted the village of Shipbourne permission to hold a weekly market. In May 2003, with the help of a grant from Rural Revival, 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 such as the Farm Crisis Network and Bread-line Africa.
We aim to provide our customers with a one stop shop. We have an extensive range of excellent quality local products including both basics and unusual fare.
