The building dates back to the 1770’s and has a long, varied and interesting heritage. The Market has always been an attraction for visiting tourists, providing a unique showcase for the very best in local crafts, food and drink. 

Centred in the middle of the City, accessed either from the High Street, Market Street or through the Golden Cross in Cornmarket Street, the Covered Market welcomes its visitors with an array of colours and aromas.

From Monday 12 April 2021, non-essential retailers have been able to open and visitors can enjoy personal and bespoke customer service in a Covid-safe environment. As the Market is an indoor venue, please remember to wear a face covering when you visit.
