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).

Good bye Allison, your blog was a real inspiration!
I have decided that this will be my final post on this blog. It has been truly wonderful sharing my adventures with you over the last few years, but I think I’m ready to bring this thing to a close.
I’ve met wonderful people from all over the world on here, and parting is very bittersweet. Your friendship, support, and encouragement have meant so much to me. From my year in Japan to my adventures in the Pacific Northwest to my new home in California, you’ve helped me to see the beauty in all of my surroundings and to grow into a more curious and appreciative person than I ever was.
I hope those of you I’ve been in touch with over the years will stay in touch, and I’d love it if you would join me on instagram, where I’m still sharing snapshots of my wanderings.
