We are proud of our ongoing commitment to and investment in making our market modern, attractive, and atmospheric.

Markets are a great British tradition, bringing many economic and social benefits to local communities. Over many centuries markets have played a crucial role in the UK’s towns & cities; it is no different in Leighton Buzzard. There has been a Market in Leighton Buzzard since medieval times, circa 1086.

Leighton Buzzard has a bustling, modern twice-weekly market at the heart of the vibrant High Street. The market runs on a Tuesday and Saturday where shoppers can choose from stalls selling everything from classic market staples such as fresh fruit and vegetables, fish, plants and cut flowers to books, shoes, clothing & food.

The High Street is host to events, visiting markets and regular speciality markets throughout the year. Within close proximity to public parking and the public transport network, it’s easy to get here.

We would love to welcome you to Leighton Buzzard Market soon.

Leighton Buzzard Market is managed by Leighton-Linslade Town Council.  Leighton-Linslade Town Council holds the market Charter and is therefore the market authority who will assert its market rights as it sees necessary, read the statement here.
