Boston May Fair

Boston Borough Council and the Showman's Guild are pleased to announce that for the first time on Sunday 5th May 11am-1pm the May Fair on Bargate Green Car park and Wide Bargate will be opening without sound. This will enable families with children with additional needs to enjoy the delights of the May Fair without the sensory overload that can sometimes prevent some of them enjoying the experience.

Bargate Green Traders Joins Main Market in Town Centre

Bargate Green Market which is held every Wednesday will join the main market in the Boston Market Place from Wednesday 6th March 2024.

Boston Market has been a recognised tourist attraction in its' own right since it obtained its Charter of Incorporation from Henry VIII in 1545.

The market offers diverse goods and services including fresh local produce, toys, fabrics, household goods, and clothing. Outdoor catering vendors provide drinks and snacks.

To streamline operations and enhance visitor experience, the Bargate Green traders will now be situated within Boston Market Place, every Wednesday.

Cllr Dale Broughton, Portfolio Holder for Town Centre including Markets: "This move has been part of many conversations over the past few months. I am really happy that we are moving the Bargate Green traders over to the Market Place. The traders joining with the main market will create a more complete market rather than being in two places, and I am confident this move will increase trade to the market itself."
