Loughborough Market

Our Customer Service Centre on Southfield Road is now open for essential enquiries by appointment only. Please be aware that it is mandatory for face coverings to be worn on the premises. More information, including how to make an appointment, can be found in this news story.

Our award-winning Loughborough retail market has been part of the town’s history for almost 800 years and is rich in character, atmosphere and colour.

The market stalls sell an eclectic range of products from fresh produce to confectionary, clothing to household goods.

In 2017, Loughborough retail market won the Best Large Outdoor Market of the year award. It was recognised for the support it gives to traders and its work with Loughborough University.
