Town Centre Regeneration - Markets

Cirencester’s Markets are Open for Residents, Business and Visitors.  Work commenced on 22 February in the town centre and the Town Council has been working hard to ensure the centre of Cirencester is still open to local residents, businesses and visitors. This includes the continued provision of both the weekly Friday Charter Market and the fortnightly Farmers' Market.

With effect from Friday 26 February, the market will be temporarily re-located to the area adjacent to the church, around the war memorial and West Market Place.

Additionally, the Town Council are looking forward to the opportunity to reinvigorate the current market provision and are seeking the views of the community to help shape Cirencester Markets’ future. If you wish to take part in the survey please click the Questionnaire link at the bottom of this page, or collect one from the Local Information Centre at Bingham House.

“We are committed to ensuring that Cirencester continues as normal to all that visit the town and the continuation of the market is key to that. Looking to the future, the new Market Place will provide a wonderful space to host a new improved market, themed markets and events which will create a thriving market town experience.” Mark Harris, Mayor of Cirencester
Becky Coles, Community Services Manager said “This is an exciting and timely opportunity for the residents and visitors of Cirencester to be part of developing an attractive market that provides an appealing shopping experience for all. We are keen to obtain views on the future of our historic markets and aim to enhance their status within the local community, highlighting the importance of the markets as community assets.”
