What we hope you will enjoy from your market experience

About our market

Leighton Buzzard Market is a social place, to get things done, to enjoy a chat and to dwell for a while over lunch.

We hope that everyone who joins us in Leighton Buzzard, on Tuesdays and Saturdays – shoppers and traders – enjoys the experience.

We believe that Leighton Buzzard Market thrives because it is the right match for the people of Leighton–Linslade, and the surrounding Bedfordshire and Buckinghamshire villages.

For the community, and for the traders
A market, at the centre of Leighton Buzzard, is both a historic and modern feature of our town.

We are proud of our history – there has been a Market in Leighton Buzzard since medieval times, circa 1086. – and of our ongoing commitment to and investment in making our market modern, attractive and atmospheric.

Independently managed by the Leighton-Linslade Town Council, the community and traders benefit from the attention of a local team, who create markets and select traders to match the needs of the community and complement the permanent Town Centre retailers.

We have a set of standards and carefully select a number of small business and trading standards schemes including Love your Market and Real deal.

The ongoing mission of the Town Council is to create vitality, variety and value for customers and to enable maximum footfall, flow and dwell time for the traders. As our town and community grows, we look to the future, and keep our market open, relevant and vibrant.

We are driven by our progressive market vision:
