It has been said that “Barnet is the Market”. This is because a charter for a market in Barnet was granted by King John over 800 years ago and prior to that there was very little on the site that is Chipping Barnet. Apart from its historic value, the Stall Market is a place where shoppers can mingle in a relaxed atmosphere while picking up bargains. Shoppers can choose from fresh fruit and vegetables, flowers, fish, meat and poultry, bread, cakes and a whole variety of other food and goods; all at true ‘Market prices’. Barnet Market is now back on its completely refurbished St Albans Road site.
