Pontefract food, arts and crafts market

We have made changes to the opening times of some of our markets and have temporarily closed those smaller ones with less footfall and fewer traders to protect you during the coronavirus outbreak.

Visit https://www.wakefield.gov.uk/markets to see the changes in opening times of your market.

The Food, Arts and Craft market operates from March through to December on the first Friday of the month from 9am to 4pm.

Located on the main market precinct, the market supports our farmers/produce market and is surrounded by Pontefract’s main shopping area with points of interest such as Pontefract Castle, Pontefract Museum and Pontefract Market Hall, all within easy reach of a number of town-centre carparks and the bus station.

A wide array of home-baked goods and a whole host of assorted craft and jewellery items are on sale. Add in the delicious hot food and street entertainment, and this is a family day out not to be missed!
