Towcester (Roman name Lactodorum) is the oldest town in Northamptonshire and can trace its origins back to the middle ages. It is a well-established market town with an impressive Italianate Town Hall in the centre overlooking the market square.
It is in this impressive venue that the weekly Antiques Flea Market is held every Friday except for Good Friday and the Fridays closest to Christmas and New Year.
The market is open from 8 am - 3 pm and, like all flea markets, the variety of goods on offer varies from week to week and includes antiques, collectables, jewellery, silver, militaria, stamps, pictures, etc. There is also a regular stall supporting the MacMillan Nurses charity offering excellent home made cakes.
With its wide variety of antiques, collectables and general items for sale, the flea market is well worth a visit if you are in the area.
