Abergavenny market

The market is open for business every Tuesday, Friday and Saturday with additional events as follows:

  • Flea Market
    Every Wednesday

    Usually every 3rd Sunday of the month
  • Craft fair
    Every 2nd Saturday of the month

Located right in the heart of the town, both figuratively and literally, Abergavenny market has long been the focus of trade through the town.

Take a stroll through the market on a Tuesday, Friday or Saturday, and you'll find tradesmen selling all kinds of goods, from local produce to finally crafted works of art. You'll also find a large number of townsfolk hunting for a bargain!

Sadly, after over 150 years, the cattle market held its last livestock sale on 10 December 2013, and has now been moved to the new Monmouthshire Livestock Centre at Bryngwyn near Raglan.

Brewery Yard

Up until 2010, the area behind the town hall known as Brewery Yard was mainly used as a car park throughout the week, and taken over by market stalls at other times. It has since been redeveloped into "a vibrant events space", with terraces, seating areas and a piazza.
