Colchester Market is coming to Lion Walk!

Starting on 19 October, Colchester Charter Market will begin a trial of hosting its Saturday market in Lion Walk, Colchester.

A dozen stalls will take up the first opportunity to trial the new location this weekend, which will cover the area around Culver Street East and will operate from 9am to 5pm.

Friday’s market will continue to operate in the High Street as usual.

The decision to trial alternative town centre locations for the Saturday market is part of a number of changes which have been agreed to enhance the market. Other agreed changes to the Charter Market include:

  • Allowing stall holders to use their own stalls providing they meet appropriate safety requirements.
  • Reducing the Colchester High Street Market Pitch to £25 per pitch and offering special offers for pitches when relevant.
  • Consulting on the introduction of an additional Market Day on Wednesdays in the future
