Ellesmere Town Council by virtue of its statutory powers, enjoys market rights throughout Ellesmere and is in a position to license market events within Ellesmere and within a 6 2/3rd mile radius of its current markets, however the Council has chosen to only exercise their rights in the Ellesmere Urban Parish.

Project SY12 Community Interest Company lease the Market Hall from Shropshire Council and run the weekly Tuesday market at Ellesmere Market Hall on the Town Council’s behalf. They are currently trialling their own weekly Thursday Market as well as monthly Farmers’ and Artisans’ markets. Occasional Friday evening markets with food and music have provided another opportunity for residents and visitors to get together, shop, and relax. HERE is a link to their website.

The Council has adopted a Markets Policy which sets out the process via which the granting of licences to hold markets within these boundaries will be made and the criteria against which applications will be assessed.
