Charter Market

What is a Charter Market? 


The Charter Market is a twice-weekly retail market held in Salisbury Market Place 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 4pm 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, including 12 farmers' stalls.
