Wellington Market has existed since at least 1244 when lord of the manor Giles d’Erdington was granted the right to hold a market once a week on Thursdays. Today you’ll find its doors open on Tuesdays, Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays between 8am and 4pm, with around 100 traders occupying the current Market Hall built in 1866. Here you’ll find all sorts of goods and produce from leeks to antiques, slippers to Shropshire Blue.
Wellington’s all-new open air Artisan Market will bring together food producers, craft-makers and artists from around The Wrekin. The market will take place in Market Square on the fourth Saturday of every month, starting in April 2017.
Look out for occasional specialist markets including vintage and flea markets, young entrepreneur markets and visiting European markets.
