Hebden Bridge Market has proved so popular that it now takes place four days a week, with a different set of vendors on each day of trading. Open 9am to 4pm, Thursdays feature fresh produce and wider retail, Fridays second hand goods, Saturdays are for arts, crafts and artisan products and Sundays are focussed around local produce and food. Expansion came in the wake of The Great British Market Awards 2016, when Hebden Bridge won Best Small Outdoor Market. The market also garnered special praise for its work at the heart of the community and help to regenerate the town following the devastating floods in 2015, which are estimated to have caused £150m of damage to Hebden Bridge, Mytholmroyd and Todmorden.

Situated in Old Lees Yard, St George’s Square, the market has around 40 stands, and a wide range of stalls. Depending on the day, you might find natural skin care handmade in Hebden Bridge here, jewellery, prints or cold cuts from the Marsh Top Farm Shop in Oxenholme. Keep an eye out for wooden crafts, or Indian dosas and Mexican street food. Relative newcomer and firm favourite are the natural yeast doughnuts from Ant & Doh, while others may be tempted by sticky toffee puddings from Earby, Italian treats from Casa Mia restaurant, or the more savoury delights of greek olives, chilli jam, soups and sauces.

The market is around an eight minute walk from Hebden Bridge station. It’s very close to vintage boutique Lucy and the Caterpillar, which sells hand-picked items from the 1930’s onwards, while Market Street, the town’s main thoroughfare, is only three minutes’ walk away. Here, you’ll find The Book Case, an independent bookshop that was shortlisted in 2017 for Northern Bookshop of the Year, and Valley Organics Worker’s Co-Op, which stocks local, ethical and organic fruit, vegetables and wholefoods, including unpackaged products for customers to fill into their own containers. All these and more are what make Hebden Bridge an independent shopping haven, especially on market days.
