At the Market Place – Eat well; stay active in Cirencester this summer
The summer season is now upon us with festival fever in full swing and plenty of outdoor activities for all to enjoy. The Wimbledon crowd will be devouring quantities of luscious strawberries and it reminds us of this special time of year with beautiful fresh British produce along with a multitude of outdoor activities to keep our families happy, healthy and entertained.
July is a busy month in Cirencester and the perfect month to celebrate our outdoor spaces. Cirencester’s Love Parks Celebrations commences Friday 28 July with an inspiring array of free family sporting, leisure & nature activities; an open air Cinema in St Michael’s Park; a Dog show in the Abbey Grounds and the regular weekly markets in the Market Place .
Have you experienced the new Cirencester Markets yet? Many of you will now be familiar with the new Market Place and bustling Charter and Farmers’ Market offering a fantastic shopping experience for all. The fresh produce, craft, drinks and cooked food have raised the bar with affordable, quality produce that the town centre can be proud of. There are also plenty of other traders to attract your attention including clothing, vintage goods, homewares and more. If you have not been down to visit your local market, it is well worth a visit.
In June, the Market Place saw the return of the popular Italia in Piazza, the Italian produce market. The great news is that it will be returning later this year! The new Flavours of the World Market proved to be a big success with some fantastic alternative shopping and food on the Market Place.
Also, are you aware that an Arts & Crafts market takes place on the Market Place the first Saturday of the month focusing on local artists and crafts people. If you are interested in trading, please get in touch, this is the perfect platform to reach out to your local community and show people what you can do!
Cirencester Markets take place every Monday & Friday (Charter Market) from 9am to 3pm and every second and fourth Saturday of the month (Farmers Market) from 9.00am to 2.30pm. Cirencester Arts & Crafts Market takes place the first Saturday of the month from 9am to 5pm.
