The well-dressed stall pictured above, with sunlight picking out the copper kettle and tall coffee pot, is the sort of attraction likely to tempt visitors to the Hungerford Antiques & Fleamarket, which runs three times monthly at the town hall. Organiser Kathy Coen said: “We have around 30 stalls on the Saturday and Sunday market with a footfall of more than 500. Our monthly Wednesday market is smaller with only 15 to 16 tables. However, it’s still a busy morning.”
The next dates for these events in the antiques-rich market town are Saturday, August 12, and Sunday, August 20, with the mid-week market held on the first Wednesday of each month.

Fair taken over
Meanwhile, the monthly antiques, vintage and collectables fair formerly run by Piglet Antiques at Hungerford Town Hall has now been taken over and renamed Hunger 4 Antiques.
A spokesman for the new organisers said: “Three stallholders agreed to take on the running of the fair on behalf of the dozen or so regular stallholders who wanted the event to continue. Between us we sell an interesting and eclectic mix of antiques, vintage and collectables.”
The next date for the fair, which is held on the last Saturday of the month, is August 26.
