Markets

Cirencester's Friday Charter Market  is one of the oldest charter markets in the country and was mentioned in the Domesday Book in 1086.  The Cirencester Farmers' Market takes place every second and fourth Saturday of the month. 

 
 

The Future of Cirencester Markets 

Cirencester Town Council is pleased to announce that a partnership has been created with Cotswolds Markets Ltd to re-invigorate the current Charter and Farmer’s markets and is looking forward to providing more themed markets and events next year.

Press Release


Cirencester Charter Market

Cirencester Charter Market is held every Friday from 9am to 3pm. The market features an array of stalls which include the highest quality fresh food, plants, local produce, crafts, luxury items, quirky keepsakes and much more. Cirencester Charter Market has a long and proud history and some the traders have been trading on the Market for over 30 years.

The market emphasis is on the highest quality product, competitively priced. The majority of traders are locally based small business enterprises who are incredibly enthusiastic about their products, the market and Cirencester.

Not only does the Charter Market provide a great shopping opportunity, it acts as a community hub and is utilised by a wide range of local organisations wishing to promote their services and engage with the community. We welcome market enquiries from local community organisations and enterprises wishing to make a guest appearance on the Market.

 


Cirencester Farmers' Market

Since September 1999, when twenty nervous stallholders manned their pitches on the edge of the (now vanished) cattle market, Cirencester has been lucky to have a regular farmers' market.

The market is held from 8.30 am until 1.30 pm on Saturday mornings on the second and fourth Saturdays of each month. 

From locally brewed beer, pies, chocolate brownies, game poultry, fruit and veg.... you name it, if it's in season and local, it will be at the Cirencester Farmers' Market.
