The earliest record of Wellington Market dates to 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.
‘The Bazaar’ is Wellington’s monthly craft fair and brings together crafters from around The Wrekin on the first Saturday of each month, inside the Market Hall.
