It’s a historic town and the traditional market square was originally built for just that purpose. It rang out once again with the sound of trade at the first event on 26 October 2011, at a hugely successful first day.

Held in the pedestrianised market square area, the town now holds a regular weekly general market once again.

Come to Poulton-le-Fylde each Monday for a selection of goods including clothes, gifts, homewares, confectionery, food and snacks.

Open each week on Monday, come rain or shine, it’s quickly become a focal point for the town. The market transforms an otherwise quiet day into a hive of activity, throughout the pedestrianised town centre. It was originally built as, you guessed it, a market square!

Local Shops in the Community

Unusual in today’s society are the small groups of local shops which you’ll find in the local communities all over the Fylde Coast. Poulton is certainly no exception.

It’s so handy to be able to buy the necessities of life close to where you live without having to make a car journey. It also keeps the local neighbourhood alive and vibrant.
