Market Drayton

Shropshire’s Spicy Secrets!

The Ginger and Spice Festival explores the heritage & history of medieval market town in North Shropshire located on the county borders of North Staffordshire and Cheshire.

Market Drayton was originally set up by the monks of nearby Combermere Abbey in order to sell their home grown produce & wares, the market became the centre for trade in the area, and is still a thriving weekly market (Wednesday and Saturday).

The town is currently home to Billington’s Gingerbread which has been made in the town for over 200 years, as well as the Original Biscuit Bakers, yoghurt producer Müller, Fordhall Organic Farm plus real ale producers, Joule’s, who have been brewing since the 12th century, also originally by monks!

Market Drayton is celebrated as being the Home of Gingerbread and is also twinned with the French town of Pézenas.
