This evening market will be complemented by late night opening from the Market Rasen high street shops.

And there will be a free prizewinning Snowman Trail for families to complete whilst taking in a unique shopping experience.

All of the the town’s many independent traders will be offering a warm and personal welcome.

Between the high street shops and the market stalls, visitors are guaranteed a huge choice of gifts, in addition to plenty of places to eat and drink once the shopping is done.
