Waltham Abbey Market
Every Tuesday and Saturday
There has been a market in Waltham Abbey for over 700 years. The Tuesday market is a Charter Market which means within a radius of six and two third miles no other market is allowed to operate on that day.
Some of the stall holders have traded at Waltham Abbey for decades, bringing to the town colour and goods ranging from traditional fish, fruit, vegetables and flowers to exotic spices. Alongside these can be found a range of ladies and men’s clothes, tools, toys and pet foods.
During the summer months between May and September an Arts Exhibition is held along the Abbey Church Pathway. Artists display their works and can be seen drawing and painting. Why not combine a trip to Waltham Abbey market with a sightseeing tour of the historic town? You could for instance browse the market in the morning, have lunch in an ancient public house, visit the great Abbey Church and the museum in the afternoon and finish your day with a cream tea in one of the excellent cafes overlooking the Abbey grounds.
