Attraction in Oswestry, Shropshire
The weekly market in Oswestry was given its charter in 1262, and with over 100 stalls its the largest market in the Welsh borders.
The influence of Wales is still strong and as you walk around, you'll hear a distinct fusion of languages. You'll also see it reflected in the unique creativity of the local arts and crafts.
Oswestry actually boasts two markets - one in town at the Horse Market & Bailey Head. The other, outside town, is the Oswestry Smithfield livestock auctions. If you fancy fresh farm produce and home-made foodstuff, plus the necessary bargain offer, you'll enjoy Market Day hugely.
Recently the indoor market undertook an ambitious refurbishment and was recently awarded Best Local Council Market.
Indoor Markets take place on Wednesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.
Outdoor Markets on Wednesdays and Saturdays.
Farmers Market takes place last Friday of the month.
