Hinckley town centre market

Hinckley market has been at the heart of the town for over 700 years. There are markets held each week on Monday, Friday and Saturday in Hinckley town centre as well as a farmers' market on the third Thursday of every month.

First recorded in the year 1311, our award-winning market is one of the best in the country and it is no coincidence that the busiest days in Hinckley are its market days, showing what impact the market has on the local economy.

Hinckley Market has gone from strength to strength in recent years, with an increase in stalls on all three days. The Friday market in particular has almost doubled in size over the last few years, when many other markets are in decline.

Hinckley Market's new website gives more information about the history, a list of stalls on each market day, information for potential new traders, news and more.
