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.

Given its history and location, it is likely that Great Yarmouth has been a market town since people started to settle in the area in larger numbers in around 1008 AD, with agricultural produce and fish to trade, well before the King John Charter was granted in 1208.

Part of the market place was paved and the first market cross erected in 1384, and it's this section of the market place which is home to Great Yarmouth's permanent covered central market, open six days a week from Monday to Saturday. Great Yarmouth central market has a range of takeaway food and fresh grocery stalls 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 on the cobbled area of the market place and traders arriving in town from the local area to ply their goods. An extra Friday market takes place in the summer months from May through to October, when the seaside resort is even busier.
