Charter Market

What is the Charter Market? 


The Charter Market is a twice-weekly retail market held in Salisbury Market Place, and run by the City Council. The market is held every Tuesday and Saturday, except on the third Tuesday in October (due to the annual Charter Fair).

The market is open from 8am until 4.30pm on both days, except between Christmas and Easter when it closes at 3.30pm.

The Tuesday and Saturday market comprises a wide range of approximately 90 stalls of various sizes.  We have a central hot food area offering hog roast, pizza, thai, and mexican food.  We have our own farmers' market of 12 blue/white stalls incorporated in to the main market.   A huge range of goods is on offer including food (meat, fish, fruit and vegetables, cheeses, bread, cakes, tea and coffee), clothes, shoes, bags, jewellery, watches, flowers, music, tools, collectables, homeware, pet food, fabrics, jigsaws, and linen.
