Aberystwyth Winter Market


Aberystwyth's Winter Market is held on 3 consecutive Monday's from mid November. In 2016 this should be the 14th, 21st and the 28th of November. It starts around 8:00-9:00am and goes on till around 8:00pm - often finishing earlier when the weather's bad. The current location for the market is along Park Avenue.

The Winter Market and Fun Fair are part of a tradition that goes back to the middle ages. In 1791 the Gentleman's Magazine and Historical Chronicle mentioned that:

The markets at Aberystwyth are on Mondays; and the first Monday in November and in May are called Hireing Mondays (Dywllun y Cyflogan), and a vast number of people meet there to hire servants, by ancient custom, time immemorial.
