Bringing our historic market grounds alive

Bringing our historic market grounds alive

Our plans will create a modern, vibrant town centre experience with additional space alongside our traditional markets – providing more flexibility to host outdoor events, speciality markets and create unique experiences.

Market Square will remain home to Chesterfield’s permanent market with New Square providing temporary stalls on busy market days. Market Square includes a central space that can be used for smaller events to support the market use. New Square will include a large flexible space for seasonal events, markets and moments of celebration.
