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.
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.
