Love Your Market Week


Bedford is a thriving market town with its original 'charter' dating back more than 800 years when King Henry II granted it in 1166, allowing Bedfordians to hold their own market. A market has been held on St Paul's Square since the 1500's.

Bedford Charter Market

The general Markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays on the historic Harpur and St Paul's Squares has retained a freshness and appeal by offering a wide range of quality goods at affordable prices, from olives to key cutting services, toys to hot food.
