Pontefract is home to Wakefield District's largest street market, extending from the market place to the area near the museum and library behind St Giles church. The market offers a wide variety of goods from fresh produce, baked breads and fish to fashion, jewellery and flowers.

The open markets are held on Wednesday and Saturday with a local farmers' market on Fridays.

Open six days a week, Pontefract Market Hall is home to 28 independent traders selling fresh meat, produce, cheese, carpets, fashion and much more.

You can combine your shopping experience with a visit to Pontefract's other attractions such as the racecourse and the historic castle.
