Regular and varied market days are set to become a crowd-pulling feature of Aylsham following a community drive to boost the town.
The first of what is hoped will become monthly specialist Saturday markets takes place on September 29, with continental stalls earmarked for Red Lion Street on October 19 and a three-day “frost fair”, from November 29, planned to coincide with Aylsham’s Christmas lights switch-on celebrations.
The moves coincide with a successful re-launch of Aylsham’s traditional Friday market which was in danger of folding because of wrangles over parking restrictions in the picturesque Market Place.
The town already hosts farmers’ markets on the first and third Saturdays of the month, and a Monday market coinciding with the popular Keys auctioneers’ sale.
Aylsham’s drive to reinstate market days as an important part of community life is echoed in North Walsham, which is planning a town-centre flea market (see inset).
