The market has maintained a lot of its original features, including the bell which used to ring at 9am every day to advise trading had started, the bell is still in use during special occasions.

Residents are invited to visit the market on Friday 5 May, where they will be greeted by traders in their best Victorian outfits, along with the market decorated ahead of the Coronation weekend.  

On Saturday 6 May, where visitors have the opportunity to win a hamper packed full of goodies, supplied by the traders.
