Falmouth Weekly Market ‘Market on the Moor throughout the festival’

The Moor in Falmouth has been a market space for hundreds of years, a tradition which is still very much alive today thanks to the Falmouth Weekly Market. Held every Thursday and Saturday on The Moor, the local traders sell a fantastic range of products from barista coffee to vegan thalis and vintage clothing to garden furniture. If you are interested in joining the market then please email Naomi Morant, Events and Marketing Coordinator:
