Did you know that Clevedon Market was granted charter status in October 1346 by Kind Edward lll? This means the Thursday Market in Queens Square is almost 674 years old!
That was before Clevedon had any shops. Being a Charter Market, the traders had the right to trade and no other market could set up in the vicinity on Thursdays,which is still the case! There is only one thing that can close down a Charter Market and that is an act of Parliament!
Some things will look very different to the first markets, some items for sale will be similar what locals would have been on the hunt for, even then.
Join the fun today from 9am until 4pm where fruit and veg, fresh bread and cheese, clothing, pet food, local crafts, household goods and even eyebrow threading are available.
During the second lockdown starting on the 5th November, the market will look a little different. Most of the food stalls will be operating and this will include fruit and veg, fish, take away curry and the cheese stall and possibly one or two others. Some of the non essential stalls are looking at home delivery or mail order… details to follow.
