History of Hucknall Market

On 11th August 1873 at a Local Board meeting a request was made for a public market to be introduced. On 23rd April 1875 advertising & printed handbills told the population that on that Friday (and subsequent Fridays) there was to be a market in Church Square.

In 1904 a delegation of local farmers pursued the idea of holding regular Farmer`s Markets and on Tuesday 7th June, 31 beast, 81 sheep, 116 pigs & 10 horses were offered for sale. It was noted how good the animals were. By September of that year sales had diminished to only 11 beast, 20 sheep plus swine. By January 1905 the farmer`s market had become a general market. 

The Friday market continued to trade at Church Square every Friday until 16th June 2017 when it re-located to the nearby High Street.

From the 9th of September 2017 Saturday markets were introduced which has added more variety and additional traders. 

Today the market operates from 9.00am - 4.00pm as a general market every Friday and Saturday from its location on the pedestrianised area of Hucknall High Street. The contemporary red and white striped market stalls are strategically placed along the High Street to compliment the retail offer from this prime shopping location in the heart of the town.

Hucknall market currently offers a variety of products and services every week including:

Fresh Grimsby Fish, Fresh fruit and vegetables, Fresh flowers, Eggs, Sweets, Bread, Pastries and Cakes, Ladies and Childrens fashion clothing, Underwear, Socks and Tights, Perfumes and Cosmetics, Housewares, Puzzle books, Curtains and Bedding, Haberdashery, Seasonal Garden Plants, Double Glazing and Conservatories, Pocket Money Toys,  A choice of street food including Hot Jacket Potatoes, Hot Dogs, Burgers and Pork and Stuffing Rolls.
