Sowerby Bridge open market

Sowerby Bridge is a lively market town which lies within the Calder Valley and hosts an open market constructed in 2007 at a new location in the centre of town. It’s probably the only solar powered Love your local market logomarket in the UK!

The market offers an array of fresh foods, many sold from the purpose-built secure units. Four times each year the market is doubled in size and takes on the theme of Totally Locally Totally Locally: Facebook Sowerby Bridge local businesses sell their wares from the market with a celebration of entertainment and local products.

Each September the market also plays host to the Sowerby Bridge Rushbearing Festival .
