Chorley is famous for its markets, which date back to 1498 - the most popular market day in the Lancashire town is Tuesday.
There are two main markets in Chorley. Chorley covered market, which makes up the heart of the town and operates five days a week and Chorley’s Tuesday market, which is now located along the streets of Chorley town centre. The Tuesday market sees everyone’s favourite stalls lining Fazakerley Street, Chapel Street, New Market Street, Cleveland Street and the bottom half of High Street every Tuesday. Traditionally, this market was held on the Flat Iron (sometimes known locally as the 'Cattle Market'), however, in July 2017, the market moved to the streets to make way for the extension to Market Walk shopping centre.
We have more than 150 stalls on our busiest day and Chorley markets can prove to be a great place to sell your goods. Our stalls are always in demand but we welcome new traders and casual traders who wish to trade on Chorley markets.
We have a covered market consisting of lock-up cabins and table top stalls, open five days a week, as well as an outdoor market under gazebos along the streets of Chorley town centre held every Tuesday. Please download the Tuesday market layout map for further information.
Both markets are situated in the centre of town with excellent transport links and ample parking.
