St Albans Traditional Street Market
St Albans market today is probably the most colourful and vibrant street market in the South of England. With over 160 stalls on Wednesdays and Saturdays, it offers everything from fish to fancy goods so you will be spoilt for choice. Where else could you buy a whole salmon, cut-to-size foam, healing crystals or herbs all in one place?
The Saturday and Wednesday markets
The market is steeped in History with a special Royal Charter granted in 1553. However, the market is well documented as far back as the 9th century.
The current day market is firmly established in the city centre and runs the length of St Peters Street offering an excellent shopping experience to compliment the established retail stores, such as British Home Stores, Marks and Spencer, T.K. Maxx and Boots plus many more.
