The Historical Market Place covers an area of approximately 5400 metres in the Town Centre and is presumed to have existed prior to the granting of its Charter in 1208.

The Two Day Market is a general market held each Wednesday and Saturday with approximately 60 traders, consisting of a great variety of goods, from the latest in fashion to garden accessories.

To meet the summer demand there is a Friday market (May to September) held on the Two Day Market area, with similar stalls to the Wednesday and Saturday market.

When the Two Day area is not used for Market purposes, it is used a Pay and Display Car Park.

We suggest you come and explore the historic market place and get a taste for the bargains on offer. Goods generally available most market days include market garden produce, fruit & veg, fresh meat butchers, fashion and clothing, music, linens, domestic appliance spares, car care, cosmetics, perfumes, flowers, sweets, hosiery, coats, hats & gloves, shoes, insoles and foam, sportswear and equipment, power tools, toys & games, tablecloths, jewellery and baby wear.

Opening Times

Every Wednesday and Saturday traders open their stalls from early morning til mid-afteroon.  In the summer months from May to September there is also a Friday market.
