THE MARKET PLACE We maintain Kingston’s historic market place, providing an exceptional experience for visitors and traders alike.

Kingston has been home to a bustling market for centuries, with the oldest surviving records dating back to the early 1200s—and it’s still thriving today.

Ancient Market

The Ancient Market is home to 28 permanent stalls and trades 7 days a week, 10am – 5pm. It boasts a range of traditional market stall holders, including a florist, fishmonger and greengrocers, an artisan bakery, and a vibrant street food scene serving up authentic cuisines from across the globe.

Please note that our stalls in the Ancient Market are currently full and we are not accepting any new applications. If you do wish to register your interest, please email
