Mansfield has had a market for more than 700 years and has much to offer with farm-fresh, high quality produce, friendly service and value for money.
The market is open five days a week (Tuesday to Saturday) with a food court and performance area for local entertainers. There are regular special events held on the market including Artisan and Craft markets, and International markets.
Mansfield Market is offering free rents to new stallholders during the whole of May to mark the Love Your Local Market campaign.
Mansfield District Council, which runs the market, is hoping the promotion will encourage new traders and start-up businesses to take stalls, support them while they get established and attract more shoppers to visit the historic market and town centre.
Current regular traders will also be getting a £5 stall discount for 10 days as part of the incentive, which coincides with the annual national Love Your Local Market campaign. It usually runs for a fortnight but has been extended this year to include the Queen’s Platinum Jubilee, so is now from Saturday 14 May to 5 June.
We will also have a Cleaner Greener Festival and Vegan Market to launch the start of it, Jubilee celebrations at the end of it and a Flower Show, give aways, decorations and activities throughout.
