Welcome

The market in Waltham Abbey has been around for many years gaining Charter status during the reign of Richard I to hold Markets and Fairs. Today's market is held on both Tuesdays and Saturdays. The town, along with its’ market has a very colourful history which centres around the Abbey itself. The Church, as it was then, was consecrated on 3rd May 1060, which is known as Holy Cross Day. At this point, King Harold went to the Church to pray before going off to the Battle of Hastings where he was to die in battle with William The Conqueror. It was alleged that his body was then brought back to be buried in or around until the present day.

The

market

is

situated

in

an

area

that

is

full

of

history.

If

you

are

not

local,

why

not

make

a

day

of

it

and

come

to

the

market

followed

by

any

of

the

many

attractions

offered.

In

and

around

the

market

there

are

many

and

varied

eating

places

from

cafes,

pubs,

tea

rooms,

Pie

and

Mash

(as

used

and

frequented

by

David

Beckham

and

his

family)

and

coffee houses. There is something for everyone!

The

market

has

gone

through

many

changes

over

the

years

with

traders

coming

and

going,

the

economic

climate

booming

then

dipping.

It

is

a

wonder

that

there

is

still

a

vibrant

market.

Today’s

market

consists

of

a

good

core

of

traders

that

stand

out

in

most

weathers.

There

are

still

one

or

two

product

lines

that

we

would

welcome.

If

you

might

be

interested

in

joining

of

Abbey’s

historic
