Gravesend’s Borough Market is therefore one of the oldest in England.

The Victorian Market hall underwent a major refurbishment in 2016 as the council, helped by funding from the Government’s Coastal Communities Fund, has sought to revitalise the Market’s fortunes within the town. Population growth and high-speed trains into London are adding to the town’s attraction as a place to live, do business and visit.

The Market is open six days a week all year round, offering space for 22 permanent stalls, a café and pop-up stalls for temporary trading, together with positions for street food operators in the Old Fish Market. These spaces create some flexibility into how the Market works, enabling specialist vintage, arts and crafts, local produce and other markets to take place. The programme of markets is growing, and more are planned, especially to appeal to visitors and encouraging repeat visits to the town.

A regular pattern of markets, events and activities is creating a venue for different groups to meet and forming a new social space where local people can come together and enjoy staying a little longer.

Creating a place for small businesses to thrive and grow is a key part of the council’s vision for the Market; supporting them with advice and training and encouraging their use of websites to sell their goods will be an important factor in their success.

The vision extends to the Market being a place that has a regular programme of specialist markets that appeal to visitors from outside the town strengthens Gravesend as a visitor destination. Alongside that, the intention is for the Market to be a social space where people can meet together, buy and sell, and add to their experience of the Town. Greater collaboration between traders, local businesses and the wider community will help to underpin people’s commitment to the Market of Tomorrow.

There are 22 permanent units, 6 Kitchen units and 32 pop up stalls.
