Street markets

Market Co-operatives

Street markets in Swale are now under the management of local co-operatives through a tendering process, there are now almost 5,000 independent co-operatives in the UK and with co-operatives set to transform the economic landscape these are exciting times for both our market traders and customers.

With traditional town centre markets facing strong competition from out-of-town shopping centres, an increasing number of national discount stores and 'boot fairs', the co-operative markets provides a great alternative to the everyday shopping offer meeting customer needs.

This vibrant and popular market is now held in the town centre around the Guildhall in Market Place and Court Street on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday, from 8.30am - 4.00pm.
