A Market in South Cave

King Edward the first granted a charter to the town of South Cave to hold a market and a fair in 1291.
South Cave continued to hold a market until the 1850's.
In recent years the Parish Council has resurrected the markets using the original charter and now the popular South Cave Farmers Market is held once a month on each second Saturday at the school from 9am to 1pm.
In 2007 the market received certification from the National Association of Farm Retailers and Markets, which means products bought there are certified to have been grown and/or sourced locally.
