Albert George Market

Once the center of Falmouth, the Albert George Market was the hub of economic and social life for the region. Residents traded goods and gossip here for nearly a century until a new market was built on the other side of down in the 1980's. In 1989 the Albert George Market was refurbished and now serves as a makeshift flea and craft market.
