feeing market noun a fair or market, generally held in the late spring (Whitsun) and late autumn (Martinmas), at which farmers engaged servants and farm-workers for the coming term. Discontinued since 1939. But in some market towns the Fairs have been revived in the form of local Festivals: They [the farm workers] got about six or seven pounds for a full six months’ work and usually went into the nearest town and blued [sic] the loth at the feeing market. 19-e20, 21- historical.
