Lymington is a pretty market town with Georgian architecture and a quaint feel to it, so if you fancy browsing stalls and picking up local produce during a holiday visit one of its Saturday markets. There’s a traditional market held in the bustling High Street every Saturday, and its origins are thought to date back as far as the 13th century (you can’t get much more traditional than that...).
The market takes place between 8am and 5pm and it sells anything and everything. Whether you fancy picking up a a special souvenir, sampling some local produce of choosing a hand crafted gift, there’s something to suit every taste and every budget. This is a friendly market and a good chance to join in with a regular event during a stay nearby, and many stop off on their journey to the Isle of Wight to pick up some holiday essentials before boarding the ferry across the Solent.
It’s difficult to imagine the cobbled streets of Lymington without its busy Saturday market, and there’s a relaxed feel to it that makes it a pleasure to look around whilst you’re in holiday mode. Regular stalls include fresh produce, plants and crafts.
