Experience the friendly face of shopping at one of England’s oldest markets. Great Yarmouth has one of the largest market places in England, with around 5400m of pedestrianised space, part cobbled, part paved and surrounded by historical buildings and shops. Many with ornate architecture dating from Edwardian and Victorian times.
Great Yarmouth’s permanent market is open 6 days a week, from Monday to Saturday and is located in a striking new market structure in the town centre. Stalls offer a range of takeaway food options and fresh produce as well as stalls selling useful household goods.
Market day takes place twice a week, on Wednesday and Saturday all year round, with more stalls springing up in the Market Square and traders arriving from the local area to ply their goods. An extra Friday market takes place in the summer months, from May to October, when the seaside resort is busier.
