The Market Place

Combined Shape Created with Sketch.

Downham Market has a regular, popular and thriving outdoor market held every Friday and Saturday on the Town Hall car park, next to the imposing Town Hall. The market is open between the hours of 8:00am and 4:00pm.

The Market Place

The market benefits from a wide selection of goods and wares varying from fresh locally reared meats, fishmonger, fruits and vegetables, bakery and dairy products, household goods, to clothing, garden, carpets, books, fancy goods and products to aid independent living.

One of the reasons the market attracts a high level of footfall is the Town Council’s insistence that only one trader can be licensed to sell particular goods. This ensures choice and variety as well as contributing to the overall vibrancy of the market.
