About Melton Mowbray Market


Melton Mowbray Market is the largest town centre livestock market in the country and has been in existence for 1,000 years, predating the Domesday Book.  The main market has been held on a Tuesday since at least 1324 when it was granted a charter by King Edward II.

Melton Mowbray Market is operated by Gillstream Markets Ltd and has a diverse business, running many other markets and events throughout the week including the region’s largest Fur & Feather market, a farmers, antiques and general market as well as a thriving car boot on Sundays / Bank holiday Mondays and regular Saturday horse sales. The award winning Market Tavern and Banqueting Suite holds weddings, conferences and other events.  The livestock market alone serves over 2,500 farming customers annually, with 350,000 visitors coming through the site annually.
