A picture from today’s beautifully sunny market day taken with the help of a usefully positioned mirror! Our excellent town website, Fakenham.info, gives a great little write up about the Thursday Market:
Fakenham has been a market town for a long time – it was originally granted its Market Charter in 1250, when the stalls probably occupied space around the Parish Church of St.Peter & St.Paul, an imposing building which still provides the focal point of the town.
Fakenham’s modern-day Thursday market is still situated very close to its original position at the centre of things, but has expanded considerably over time. The stalls now extend over two sites, operating around the town square near the Corn Exchange and also continuing in the large car park towards Cattlemarket Street. (NB – this is mainly where the privately run flea market takes place, at which this photo was taken).
