Cirencester's Charter Market is held in the Market Place on Monday and Friday each week.
This market is one of the oldest charter markets in the country, having been mentioned as early as 1086 in the Domesday Book. It forms a vital part of the Town Council's policy of fostering a thriving town centre. It is a shopping experience not to be missed. That it is particularly attractive seems to be proved by its regular selection by film crews looking for a typical country market as a backdrop for advertising on television.
The Monday Cirencester Market usually runs from 10am to 4pm and the the Friday Market from 9am to 3pm. You will typically find stalls selling plants, outdoor furniture, wicker baskets, food, household goods and much more.
