Grab a bargain at Chesterfield Market
Whether it’s your fruit and veg or a new wardrobe of clothes or antiques and jewellery or children’s toys, it’s all available at Chesterfield’s outdoor and indoor markets.
Chesterfield’s traditional open air market has been going since at least 1165, when the Sheriff of Derbyshire recorded an account of £12s 7d from the market of Chesterfield. The town was granted a Market Charter in 1204, but early in the 1220's it outgrew its original site near the Crooked Spire Church and it was moved to the current site in the main market square.
The general market is on every Monday, Friday and Saturday with the Flea Market on a Thursday and a Farmers’ Market every second Thursday of the month. All the markets are open from 10am – 4pm. There is also a very popular car boot sale every Sunday on the Holywell Cross car park, just a short walk from the market square.
Councillor Nick Stringer, Executive Member for Leisure, Culture and Tourism at Chesterfield Borough Council said: “We take great pride in having such a thriving market and being able to offer a wide variety of products to residents and the many thousands of visitors who come each year to see what’s on offer.
“Take some time over the summer holidays to visit, we’re sure you’ll have a great day out and will pick up some fantastic bargains!”
