Sandbach has hosted markets in the town since it was granted a royal charter in 1579 by Queen Elizabeth I. The market has taken many forms over the years from livestock, produce and crafts to celebration markets and today’s selection of traditional markets and specialist markets.
Thursday is our main market day when up to 80 stalls are erected around the town centre and in the Market Hall offering everything from household goods, electrical items, books, fabrics, clothes, meat, fish and gift items. The Market has recently been expanded to include pitches on the High Street and Cobbled Square to truely bring the Market into the Town Centre. We also have a market on Saturdays in and around the Market Hall with around 30 stalls.
Every second Saturday of the month, we host a Farmers’ Market, with around 30 additional stalls which sells local produce, crafts, gifts and confectionary.
On the fourth Saturday of the Month we hold an artisan-style market on the cobbled market square, with upto 30 stalls selling an eclectic mix of hand crafted products.
