Experience the magic of Christmas at Wolverhampton's local markets

It's that time again and Wolverhampton's three local markets are getting ready for what is the busiest time of the year.


The markets will be full of joyous festive spirit, making sure that everyone will be able to enjoy the holiday season with a smile on their face.

Your local market at Bilston, Wednesfield and Wolverhampton are places you can tick off your shopping list without compromising on the quality. When you see the variety of products you can pick up in just one trip you'll be amazed at the fun you can have shopping.

All three of the city's markets will be opening extra days in the run up to Christmas and employees and residents are invited to shop local at their local market.
