Local Excellence Market

The Abingdon on Thames Chamber of Commerce have a number of gazebos, with weights, available to hire. These are available to everyone, with a discount for charities and community groups. Many independent “one man” businesses have used these at our markets, as it is an easy, affordable hire, rather than an expensive purchase. Other hirers this year have included the Abingdon Food Festival, Heritage Weekend and many local charities with stands on the Market Place.
