Ledbury Charter Market

Come and Visit Ledbury's Charter Market

Ledbury market charter was issued by King Stephen to Bishop Robert de Bethune in 1138 and in 1584 Queen Elizabeth granted a new charter, allowing a weekly market on Tuesday and two fairs, on the feasts of St. Philip and James (1 May) and St. Barnabas (11 June). In 1617 a group of local citizens bought some property ‘at or near a place called the Corner End’ and here built the new Market House.

Today the market is held on a Tuesday and Saturday weekly where traders sell their wares of plants, rugs, eggs, cheese, fish, bread, clothes, hardware, paintings and pictures, vegetables, etc.

Market stall enquires to the Town Council Offices.

Thinking of having a Market Pitch? You will be surprised at how little it costs. All you will need is to acquire public liability insurance and a licence to sell specific food items.
