Car boot sale

Car boot sale

Chesterfield car boot sale, which is run by Chesterfield Football Club, is usually held every Sunday morning (weather permitting) from 8am to noon.

Please check the Chesterfield Football Club website before making a special journey as the car boot sale may occasionally be cancelled, for example if another event is being held at the stadium.

The car boot sale, one of the biggest in the area with up to 150 pitches available, is held at the Proact Stadium (home of Chesterfield Football Club). The site is hard standing with parking, refreshments and toilets nearby. On busy days, there are as many as 200 car boot sellers.


Entry is free for buyers and you can arrive from 8am onwards. Food and drink is available to buy around the car boot sale area.


The earliest you can arrive on site is 7am. You will be held in the football club car park until the official trading time of 8am. This helps reduce queuing vehicles blocking the surrounding roads and parking on nearby residential streets. You don’t need to book a space. The car boot stewards will advise you where to park and trade.*

Pitch prices are £10 each, with payment taken on the day. Larger vehicles are individually priced on the day.

Please note this is a car boot sale and not a market. Only genuine car boot sellers will be allowed to sell.

The car boot sale is managed by Chesterfield Football Club in accordance with Chesterfield Borough Council’s market charter rights. For further details, please contact the Proact Football Stadium on 01246 269300 or contact the club online.

* Please note: 

There are contingency plans in place for when a large number of sellers arrive and the queuing vehicles could cause a road traffic hazard on nearby streets. In these cases, sellers are allowed into a holding area before 7am to get them off the road, and when the maximum number of vehicles have been allowed in then any others have to be turned away. This is not the usual practice, and will only happen as a way of safely managing the volume of vehicles on very busy days.
