From the finest local meat, freshly caught fish, and fresh fruit and vegetables, through to tasty treats, clothes for him, her and the little ones, and enough games, books and DVDs to ensure staying at home will never be boring, it’s fair to say that there’s something for everyone at Castleford Market. And with both indoor and outdoor stalls it means you can enjoy the market whatever the weather.

The indoor market has 53 permanent traders, while the outdoor market, which is open every Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Monday, has a strong mix of permanent traders and casual stall holders.

Top Tip
There’s a preloved market every Thursday and the bargains need to be seen to be believed!

Interesting Fact
Castleford Market won the award for best dressed windows in 2018, which is certainly impressive going as the markets are surrounded by big brand high street shops and the Carlton Lanes shopping centre.
