Manningtree Market

Manningtree market is held every Saturday morning and has a great range of stallholders. It was originally granted a charter to hold a market by Henry III in 1238 and has held a market to this day – with the exception of a brief period in the 14th century when it was closed down for being in competition with the King’s market in Colchester!

About Manningtree

Manningtree is traditionally known as the smallest town in England! It is in the Tendring district of Essex, which lies on the river Stour and adjoins built-up areas of Lawford to the west and Mistley to the east. The three parishes together are sometimes also referred to as Manningtree. It is known as the former home of the infamous Witch Finder General, Matthew Hopkins and was mentioned in William Shakespeare’s play Henry IV, where Falstaff is described as “that roasted Manningtree ox with the pudding in his belly”.
