Elland Charter Market

One of our most historic markets, which serves the community each Friday.

Elland market

You will find our vibrant and historic market in the heart of the Elland town centre.

The market's origin is steeped in history. This dates back to the Royal Charter given to Richard De Eland in 1317 by King Edward II.

Our small, but perfectly formed market has everything you would expect to find and more. It serves a loyal customer base and provides a vibrant social hub for the local community.

The stalls offer a range of locally produced food and goods, such as:

Elland town centre is being transformed with money from the Future High Street Fund. This will make Elland a more attractive place to be. It involves improving amenities for people who live in, work in or visit the town.

Over £1 million has been spent on the area which hosts the market, recognising its long history.

Recent changes include:

  • An attractive new garden area with seats for people to relax and socialise.
  • New local stone flags and anchor points for the market stalls.
  • A more flexible layout to make it easier for people to trade and shop.

What Elland market will become

New trees and planting around the market will be added for a new look and feel. This will also contribute to climate action.

There are also proposed changes to nearby Elizabeth Street, which will:

  • improve safety for market visitors;
  • and increase the flexibility of the market space, to allow for events such as larger, specialist markets.
