Market history

Not only is the provision market in Bury St Edmunds one of the most successful traditional street markets in the country, it also has one of the longest and most colourful histories and it dates back to before the days of William the Conqueror. The market charter was issued by King John in 1202 and there has been a market ever since.

At various times the market has been split into several sections, including provisions, a corn market, a livestock market and a fish market. The provisions market occurs on Wednesdays and Saturdays in the Cornhill and Buttermarket area of town. This has grown to where it is now and has over 80 stalls on a Saturday and only slightly less on a Wednesday.
