There has been a weekly market in Chippenham since King John first granted a charter to hold one in April 1205. Later King Edward extended the privilege in 1314 so that an additional market could be held on a Saturday.
These historic twice-weekly markets, now held on Friday and Saturday, which from June 1st came under the control of Chippenham Town Council.
The town council has employed a full-time Market and Compliance Manager who will ensure the markets run smoothly and safely and that traders and shoppers are happy.
Taster sessions, casual and permanent pitches are available. Do you have a hobby and would like to sell your work? Are you an artisan maker or producer on a small scale and want to test the market? Ask us about our hobbyist stalls.
If you have any ideas on what you would like to be included in the market, how we could improve the market or if you are interested in having a stall, we would love to hear from you.
Contact us on 01249 446699 or send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
