every Thursday (except in the winter) and it was formerly known as the WI market. It sells jams, marmalades and chutneys, plants, homegrown fruit and veg and all kinds of home-made goodies. Various knitted items and hand made cards are also sold.
In the centre of one side of the ground floor is the Parish War Memorial. A large plaque says the market house was restored and a new clock erected in memory of the 64 men of the parish who died in World War 1.
The smaller World War 2 plaque below has 17 names and a further plaque lies horizontally below but was covered by 7 wooden crosses from Armistice Day and I couldn't count how many names were there. On the left hand side, under Lest We Forget, there is a brass plaque in memory of a soldier who was killed in Afghanistan in 2009. At the other end of the town, outside the library is a brick built memorial to a US bomber pilot who died in November 1943 after steering his crippled bomber away from the town.
Two people of note with a connection to Princes Risborough are Sir Peter Lely who served as Painter to both Charles I and Charles II (painting buxom ladies) and managed to serve Oliver Cromwell, too; Amy Johnson, the first female pilot to fly solo from Britain to Australia in 1930, reputedly lived in the town for a while. She drowned in 1941 in mysterious circumstances while ferrying aircraft.
A pleasant place to visit.
