Stockton Town Centre Market
Following the £35 million regeneration of Stockton Town Centre, Stockton market was relocated to a centralised point within our award winning High Street, enabling visitors to sample the delights of market stalls whilst at the same time enjoying the heritage that the town has to offer. The market has a vast selection of stalls from fashion to fresh fruit and veg, soft furnishings to seasonal plants, pies and peas to greeting cards and gifts. After a busy day browsing the stalls and town centre, you can wind down and relax at one of several market café stands or many others situated around the town centre.
This traditional market is held every Wednesday, Friday and Saturday. You can get one hour free parking in several town centre short stay car parks, or if you want to stay a little longer it’s £1 for three hours.
As well as hosting the largest market in the area, Stockton Market won the best 'large outdoor market' at the 2018 National Association of British Market Authorities awards. Also, Stockton-on-Tees is home to several other smaller but equally fantastic markets. These markets are held in both Billingham and Thornaby respectively. Further information regarding these markets as well as the days in which these markets take place can be found in the section below.
Stockton-on-Tees Borough Council are part of the Real Deal charter which demonstrates a commitment to prevent counterfeits and other illicit goods being sold at our traditional markets.
