A fine old market town, with good shopping, especially for antiques. Little has changed in Ashbourne since the 18th Century and it is one of Derbyshire’s finest old market towns, combining a medieval street pattern and historic buildings with a wealth of high quality shops. The cobbled market place, hidden alleys and yards are a delight to explore, and the wide and elegant Church Street is considered to be the finest street of Georgian buildings in Derbyshire.
Buxton boasts a wide range of shops from Waitrose to Café Nero, Marks & Spencer to Next as well as some of the best in specialist designer boutiques.
The pedestrian-friendly Spring Gardens offers a balance of familiar High Street names and local specialist retail. The Cavendish Arcade is a unique and vibrant mix of craft, fashion, antiques, books and chocolate!
Officially the Highest Market Town in Britain, Buxton’s Market days are Tuesday and Saturday on The Market Place in Higher Buxton, which also boasts a variety of outlets for those in need of a little retail therapy. There is also a monthly Farmers' Market in the Pavilion Gardens and an annual Continental Market bristling with traders from across Europe.
You'll be surprised at what you can buy at Chesterfield Market, it's just a matter of finding it among so many stalls. This traditional open air market has been going since at least 1165, when the Sheriff of Derbyshire recorded an account of £1 2s 7d from the market of Chesterfield. The town was granted a Market Charter in 1204, but early in the 1220's it outgrew its original site near the Church and moved to where you see it today.
Market days are every Monday, Friday and Saturday all year round, Flea Market every Thursday, Farmers' Market on second Thursday and last Sunday of every month and a car boot sale in Holywell Cross Car Park every Sunday.
