Aldworth Community Saturday Market

Aldworth Market

Aldworth’s community-run Saturday Market is in Aldworth’s beautiful village hall (RG8 9SE).  The hall is off Bell Lane adjoining the recreation/cricket field with a children’s playground next to the hall. Aldworth is halfway between Compton and Streatley.

The Market runs from 9.30 a.m. to 12 noon every week except the last two Saturdays in August.

So what does the Market offer? Stalls vary but we usually sell every week:

  • Newspapers, bread, eggs and stamps;
  • Fresh fruit and vegetables collected from a local supplier;
  • Sweets and Fairtrade groceries;
  • Homemade cakes, pies and biscuits baked in Aldworth;
  • Cut flowers and plants grown in Aldworth (seasonable);
  • Handmade greeting cards sold in aid of the Church;
  • Plus, most importantly, refreshments at the Teabar with tables set out in the Hall for villagers to get together and have a chat.

Stallholders from other villages also visit the Market on a regular basis, selling produce such as home-made quiches, jams and pickles, and perennial garden plants; and craft items such as hand-knitted children’s clothes and toys, and scarves and bags.

The Market has a rota of volunteers who help to set-up and run the Market each week and most volunteers help out in some way about once a month. It is an excellent way to get involved in the village and get to know your neighbours. ASM gives a village teenager a paid Saturday Job too and welcomes young people helping in any way they can.
