Corn Market - PHOTOGRAPHER COMMENT
Corn Market looks empty in this panoramic image, but for one morning a month it is a bustling farmers market selling locally grown produce. At other times, Corn Market is a relaxing place to be, surrounded by traditional pubs and restaurants.

Wimborne is a traditional Dorset market town, and holds a number of markets each week. Every second Thursday of the month there is a market held in the Wimborne Corn Market. This farmers market brings the best of locally grown produce, from vegetables to cheeses, wines and more, to the town. Running from 9am to 1pm, it makes for an ideal morning out, not only to sample the wares and delicacies on offer, but also to explore the rest of the town. The Corn Market is surrounded by pubs and restaurants and is a short walk form the Minster (church).
Wimborne also holds Farmers Markets every Friday from 7am to 2pm in Wimborne Market, the largest covered market in Southern England. This market has over 400 stalls selling not only fresh produce, but also antiques, arts and crafts.
