Chester Market has been established in the heart of the city centre for decades and continues to provide high-quality goods, expert advice and friendly service for Cestrians and visitors alike.
Open Monday to Saturday, Chester Market provides a unique shopping experience that you will be hard pushed to find on the High Street.
The Market is Chester’s only street food hub for you to enjoy foods of the world and relax in the communal seating area. It’s also a great place to come for locally-sourced fresh food, including the only fishmonger in the city centre, award-winning butchers, as well as a vast array of cheese and cooked meats. In-keeping with market tradition we offer an engraving and key cutting service and a popular book and vinyl store. For the green fingered there is a fantastic plant shop. Providing that personal touch you will find barber shops, a range of gifts, fashion, footwear and original works of art.
The Market features an award-winning Italian pizzeria, authentic Thai food, American street food, Mexican taco bar, artisan Polish bakery, vegan restaurant, Italian delights, deli sandwiches, bistro with tapas, Caribbean cuisine as well as a traditional British café. To compliment this we also have a craft beer bottle shop and taproom, wine bar and cocktail lounge.
The market is easily accessible within the Forum Shopping Centre.
