Boston open-air markets are held every Wednesday and Saturdays. The markets are as popular and busy today as they were when they began trading in the 12th Century.
Well worth a visit, the market stalls fill the sweeping market place and stallholders offer an array of some of Lincolnshire's finest produce. With over 120 stalls there is so much to see! Explore local produce, fresh vegetables, gadgets, toys and more. A true experience of one of England most vibrant markets.
Boston's Market Place has been the venue for open air trading fairs and 'marts' for hundreds of years - in fact the earliest historic record of a fair or "mart" is in 1132. In 1218 a Patent was granted for Boston's Fair. Once a year the London courts would close so that everyone would have the opportunity to visit Boston during the May Fair when at that time goods which were rare such as spices and wines, could be bought fresh from the port as the town flourished and Boston Port was recognised as second only to London.
In 1545 Boston obtained its Charter of Incorporation from Henry VIII, via his son Edward VI. The original document beautifully illustrated and with its impressive royal seal, is kept in the Guildhall in South Street.
Today, you can enjoy Farmers Markets, Auctions, mid week markets and craft markets.
