Market Rasen Mail is a weekly newspaper which serves Market Rasen, Lincolnshire, England and the surrounding area.
It was founded in 1856 by Richard Hackett (1823 – 1892), the son of a local farmer. At the age of 18 Hacket was working as an apprentice to a printer in Queen Street, Market Rasen. After a period as a bookseller in London, he returned to Market Rasen to establish the Market Rasen Weekly Mail and Lincolnshire Advertiser. The first edition was published on 20 September 1856.
