Home Out and About Places to Visit Abergavenny market

Abergavenny market

Located right in the heart of the town, both figuratively and literally, Abergavenny market has long been the focus of trade through the town.

Take a stroll through the market on a Tuesday, Friday or Saturday, and you'll find tradesmen selling all kinds of goods, from local produce to finally crafted works of art. You'll also find a large number of townsfolk hunting for a bargain!

The cattle market provides an experience not to be missed - the sights, sounds (and smells!) of the livestock being traded have changed little over centuries.

Sadly, the days of the cattle market within the town centre are numbered. A new cattle market is planned for a site near Raglan which promises modern facilities with better provision for animal welfare.
