Ford Airfield Sunday Market and Car Boot Sale on Ford Airfield, near Arundel, is a weekly Market & Car Boot Sale held on Sundays from 8.30 am.
Established 30 years ago, Ford Market and Car Boot Sale is one of the best in the land as it is set on a safe, concrete airfield that is managed and monitored responsibly.
Ford Airfield Sunday Market and Car Boot Sale continue to be one of the very best-run markets in the country achieved by hard work, respect and let’s face it, helped by the fact that it is situated on a flat, concrete airfield.
Saturday is the big one, attracting people from all over the country and abroad. Thursday is becoming increasingly popular with the Sunday Market enjoying record numbers.
Our good reputation is also founded on the fact that we keep a cautious eye on all who attend. We’ve known some traders for many years but we welcome and get to know all newcomers as best we can. This basic communication means that anything untoward will be noticed and acted upon. Fortunately, this is an extremely rare occurrence.
It has its share of stories of incredible finds – like the ceremonial sword that was valued at £15,000, the Japanese brush pot that went on to sell for £40,000 and the James Bond Submariner watch prototype that eventually (after considerable repair work) sold for in excess of £80,000.
It is no wonder that people head to Ford Airfield Sunday Market and Car Boot Sale after visiting antique fairs in the area.
