Northampton Market Square
Northampton's Market Square is one of the oldest and largest in England. It dates from 1235 when Henry III forbade the selling of goods in the churchyard of All Saints and ordered that the Market be moved to a space north of the churchyard, its present site.
Markets are held Monday to Saturday. Monday is fresh fruit, vegetables, cut flowers and plants only. Tuesday to Saturday are the general market days.
The Market Square is surrounded by many interesting buildings, notably, Welsh House, Beethoven House, and Victoria House. The older buildings date mainly from the 18th and 19th centuries.
