Stowmarket: Ideal quiet life in bustling market town

Market towns are famed for regular events allowing local traders to showcase their wares, with farmers' markets and other gatherings being among the most popular reasons for people moving to the areas.

These are attractive as they give the chance to buy the freshest of produce, as well as mixing with locals in a tight-knit community, and having the opportunity to purchase locally-made goods.

If you are looking for somewhere to live where you will have the chance to partake in these activities, maybe even as a small retailer of craft products for example, then you could look to many of the rural regions of England. Those who are looking property for sale in Stowmarket though will discover some of the best opportunities around.

The small Suffolk market town is home to 15,000 people, which means that you can enjoy the perfect country life with plenty of green areas and not too many people making it feel busy.

That is not to say that the town is too quiet though, as it hosts some very popular markets every week. Buyers will be able to find a wide number of goods on a regular basis, as they enjoy the large volume of small retailers every Thursday and Saturday, with the perfect opportunity for new sellers to sell to a good number of consumers.
