Markets

Markets have always provided an integral part of life in the Lake District even back when the main industry was still completely based on agriculture. The market day in any town or village was the most important day of the week or month, attracting people from miles around to come and trade their wares or buy their essentials. Today markets are not quite so vital in the community but farmers still trade their livestock all around the region, at the markets. The Appleby horse fair is a world famous event where Romany Gypsies and Irish Travellers come to trade their horses. It is the largest gathering of gypsies anywhere in the world and as such has become a tourist attraction in its own right.
