Kirkby Lonsdale has had a Market Charter since 1227. The original market was situated at the corner of Main Street and Market Street before being relocated to the town’s elegant Georgian square, overlooked at one end by The Royal Hotel, made famous by a visit by Queen Adelaide in 1840, and at the other by the old bank.

Kirkby Lonsdale’s Thursday Charter Market is a popular way to shop locally and pick up the freshest goods. It has a range of stalls offering everything from local produce to plants and jewellery. 

The Country Market held in the Lunesdale Hall between 10am and 12 noon on market day is also a great source of home-made goods. These include include bread, cakes, jams and preserves, plus hand-crafted home and personal accessories. 

There are other markets in and around the Lune Valley. You can find them at Sedbergh (Wednesday), Kendal (Wednesday and Saturday) and Milnthorpe on a Friday.

Community gazebos are available for use by local schools, community groups, startups, local retailers and charities. 

General stallholder spaces are available throughout the year.

For all stallholder and community gazebo enquiries telephone 015242 97177 or email
