There has been a market in Nantwich since 1500.  The present building, at the junction of Market Street and Churchyardside, dates from 1867.

The Market operation is now managed by the Town Council following the transfer from Cheshire East in May 2012.



The Market is open on Tuesday, Thursdays and Saturdays.

Stallholders sell a wide variety of goods including fresh produce and household items. The cosy Tea Chest cafe serves hot and cold snacks, drinks, breakfast and lunchtime specials.

The Indoor Market has 20 built in units and space for 20 stalls / open pitches across the floor of the hall.

The Outdoor Market has pitches for over 20 stalls.

Rents are based on the size of stall / pitch.

There is currently a waiting list for stalls.  To join the waiting list and check availability please contact the Market Supervisor, Mike Elsby on 07973 742066, the Town Council office on 01270 619224 or e-mail
