The Market Hall, Shrewsbury

About

A Shrewbury Original since
1965

Beneath Shrewsbury’s iconic clocktower is the town’s award-winning indoor market.

Cosmopolitan cafés, artisan producers, vintage sellers, quality gift boutiques, artists and craftspeople all thrive alongside traditional fresh fruit and veg stalls and family butchers who have been trading for up to 100 years.

Diners can enjoy some of the most creative food in town – authentic Beijing dumplings at a Chinese tea house, champagne and oysters at a continental-style seafood bar, Spanish tapas, sizzling Thai street food and more.

The market is home to a community of talented artists and skilled craftspeople. Watch weavers, jewellery makers and artists at work. There is even a resident art gallery.

A retro and vintage trail embraces clothing, collectables, antiques, books and vinyl records.

And if that’s not enough, visitors can indulge in chocolates made by our national award-winning chocolatier, buy a bicycle or get a quick make-over at Risdon’s barber shop.

Main trading days are Tuesday, Wednesday, Fridays and Saturday, although some stallholders also trade on Thursday.

Kate Gittins, Facilities Manager
Since Kate started at the Market Hall in 2006, it has gone through a huge deal of change. There were only a few traders on the top floor and 40% occupancy on the floor - there is now a waiting list for traders. It was Kate's vision from the start to open the market up in the evenings and make it a key destination for the town.
