A Medieval Market was a place bustling with activities, from merchants hawking their wares to pedlars pushing their carts through the busy streets selling all manner of product from pottery to haberdashery and clothing, jewellery to household goods.
The Abbey Medieval Festival Market will have many traditional aspects one would expect to find in a medieval market (although with a little less hustle and bustle as we maintain our social distancing). There will be vendors selling everything from Medieval banqueting items, dresses, helmets, armour, swords, jewellery of all kinds, medieval reproduction pottery, illuminated bookmarks, beeswax candles, wooden bowls and goblets, drinking horns to medieval accessories for men and women – hats, hoods, chaperons, pouches, purses, belts, coifs, veils and paternosters. There will be bows, arrows, armguards, quivers, archery gloves, bow bags, and bowstrings for budding archers. There will be lots of toys and games for kids, including wooden swords, shields, axes, staves, wooden castles and puzzles.
There will be vendors selling all manner of delicious food for all and those with dietary considerations – vegetarian, vegan, gluten or dairy free. These include French crepes and donuts, seafood, meat and vegan paella, Hungarian bread langos, churros, woodfire pizza, German sausages, pretzels, wood fire pide, beef and chicken skewers, venison, chevron and beef pies, and sweet tarts.
Enjoy the sights, smells and taste of the Middle Ages as you wander through the Medieval Market.
