Keswick Market

The Thursday market, which has been operated by Geraud UK Ltd on behalf of Allerdale Council, for over 15 years, is one of two that operates within the lakeside town’s Market Square, the other being on a Saturday.

The Thursday market was originally set up as a local produce and craft market and this is mostly still representative of the market today, although other market essentials are also available to buy.

Over the following two pages are a selection of some of the traders that you can expect to find in this beautiful tourist town. I went home with laden bags…
