Barkway Market is set to return to Manor Farm later this year, with stalls, food and entertainment.

The market will take place on Saturday, May 11, alongside a craft fair at the church, and is expected to attract around 4,000 visitors.

There will be 180 stalls selling items including antiques, artisan food and drink, homewares, plants, clothing, jewellery and more.

Family entertainment will be provided, and sweet and savoury refreshments will be on offer from Barkway Church, alongside a food court with a licenced bar, fresh coffee, ice-cream and food from local vendors.

Adult visitors will be asked to pay an entrance fee of £4, while under-16s go free. There is also a suggested £1 donation for car parking in adjoining fields, which will go towards Barkway Scouts who marshal the car park. 

Bookings are now open for stallholders. To book a stall email


Barkway Market can be traced back to medieval times, and was re-established as a street market in 1977.

Now run by a team of volunteers on behalf of Barkway Village Hall, all proceeds go towards the running of the hall as well as community groups and projects.

In 2023 the market raised more than £17,750.
