The Great Yarmouth covered market is open 6 days a week from Monday to Saturday, with a wide range of fresh produce stalls, including takeaway food and famous Great Yarmouth chips as well as clothes, plants and household goods.
Great Yarmouth has been a market town since at least the early 11th century, probably much earlier, and the historical market place which covers an area of approximately 5400 metres in the middle of the the town centre is thought to have existed prior to the granting of the King John Charter in 1208.
The covered market has 36 stalls of varying sizes, including fresh fish stalls, a local butcher, baker and colourful fruit and vegetable stalls, as well as several stalls serving hot food to take away including pies and peas, teas and coffees and hot bacon rolls as well as several traditional Great Yarmouth chip stalls, reputed to be the best chips in the resort. There are also stalls selling clothing, household goods, pet food, DVDs, books and collectable items.
The covered market is at the very heart of Great Yarmouth, and the community of traders are always happy to chat with their customers, making sure friendly customer service is part and parcel of market life.
Market Days take place on Wednesday and Saturdays when the cobbled market place to the north of the covered market is occupied by many other traders who arrive in town to ply their wares, with a large range of additional goods, including silver jewellery, DIY tools and equipment, toys, games, mobile phone accessories, ladies and gents fashions, pet beds and blankets, bird food and garden accessories. Market Day also includes Fridays from May to September.
