Hexham has an excellent range of independent shops to explore that are totally unique to the town. We hold a thriving farmers' market every other Saturday and every week there's a smaller Tuesday market. You can buy fruit, veg, plants and eggs from stallholders at The Shambles (covered market building) in Hexham market place most days of the week.
