Enjoy Local. Support Local.

Ringwood Town Council is working with the Market Charter holder to promote and publicise the relaunch of the historic town centre market on 24th April.

The right to hold a market was granted in 1226 and the charter has been held by the Morant family since 1792.

Over the centuries it has changed from selling local produce and livestock to general merchandise, an essential part of trade in our town.

Unfortunately, along with most retail trades nationwide, it has declined in recent years, we want to help reverse that trend.

At the relaunch there will be many new stalls offering traditional merchandise, crafts, foods  and we hope to attract sellers of local produce and a select few car booters, to create a varied, vibrant market experience.

We need the support of the townsfolk to ensure the survival of the market, not only at the relaunch, but every Wednesday thereafter.

The traders will keep coming if the buyers do!

So please come along and help us revive this ancient asset, you will be helping the whole town.

You can also help by spreading the word, by sharing the Facebook post (@ringwoodtowncouncil) or by printing and displaying the poster attached in your local shop or business- thank you.
