Whether you are after flowers, fashion accessories or fresh local produce, there are plenty of markets in Bournemouth to tempt you. 

Boscombe Market
Located in the pedestrian area of Boscombe, the open air market operates every Thursday and Saturday throughout the year*. You will find a variety of exciting foods such as fresh fruit and vegetables, meat and fish. As well as other goods including mobile phone accessories, toys, carpets, rugs and travel suitcases. For the fashion conscious, you can pick up some clothing and accessories, handbags and children's clothing.

The market is open from 8.30am to 4.30pm each trading day with snacks and drinks available on-site.

The Market is operated by Bournemouth Borough Council

Boscombe Vintage Market
You can find this vibrant vintage market by the sea inside the Royal Arcade in Boscombe. Choose from a wealth of vintage fashion, textiles, art, craft, accessories, collectables and enjoy live music. Boscombe Vintage Market first opened its stalls in October 2010, at The Crescent. It was such an instant hit that it now takes place every first Saturday of the month (10am-4pm), inside two marquees. Entry is free.
