Shepton Mallet Market

Shepton Mallet market - every Friday, 9am till 2pm

Covid-19:  Mendip District Council fully recognises the importance of its outdoor markets, and the ability for communities to shop in these open-air environments.

There has been an expected decrease in trader numbers and footfall over recent weeks and months, as such we are adjusting our market opening times slightly - but will remain open daily.

All weekday markets will run as normal, but with slightly reduced hours 9am-12 noon. There will be no markets on Saturdays.

  • Friday: Shepton Mallet Market 9am-12pm

To help support Mendip's market traders and customers during Covid-19 restrictions, some of our regular traders are also able to offer an online service:
