The market is situated in the town centre, approximately two miles from junction 37 of the M1 and makes an ideal day trip destination. The market benefits from free parking. Up to four coaches can be accommodated in the market service compound between 10:30am to 4.00pm. A free lunch will be provided for drivers.
