As an historic market town, Tewkesbury has been an important hub for traders to sell their wares for many hundreds of years. That legacy continues through to the present day with regular weekly and monthly markets as well as special themed markets adding to the vibrancy of the town.
Every Wednesday and Saturday there is a general market in the Spring Gardens Car Park with a variety of stalls selling fruit, vegetables, meat, fish, clothes and home wares.
On the second Saturday of every month there is a Farmers Market, which takes place at the Abbey Lawns car park. The market features an array of delicious local produce ranging from ciders and beer to artisan breads, cakes and pastries as well as local crafts including handmade gifts, glassware and wood sculpture.
Several times a year, Tewkesbury High Street is closed to traffic and is transformed into a Food & Arts Market. Visit the events page for details of up coming markets.
In June, the town will play host to its popular Food & Drink Festival in the glorious setting of the Abbey Grounds. Visit the events page for more information and all the details of up coming markets.
All Tewkesbury markets are run by Cotswold Markets.
