Poulton Market takes place on Monday each week, throughout the town centre. There are stalls in the Market Square and outside the Post Office.
Poulton Market is a general market. Each week there are stalls selling all kinds of different things. There’s a selection of food retailers, fruit and vegetables, homewares, clothes and accessories.
Over at the other side of the Teanlowe, stalls fill the pedestrianised area between Booths supermarket and the Post Office.
Visit Poulton has talked to shoppers and local shopkeepers several times over the years and people seem pleased with the effect it’s had on the town. It’s certainly made Monday a busy day, and increased trade in the town generally. Shops which used to be closed on a Monday are now open, and lots of new, independent retailers have opened up.
Even in winter the weekly market makes a difference to the amount of people around in Poulton town centre, and brings the place to life.
Step Back in Time
Poulton is, of course, originally a market town. Hundreds of years ago, merchants and sailed their goods up the River Wyre to Skippool and traded them at Poulton. Back in the day it was the centre of commerce for the Fylde Coast.
