Pwllheli has been holding a weekly market on Y Maes since the 14th century, when the town was awarded The Royal Charter by Edward ‘The Black Prince’. Today, it is home to the largest outdoor market in North Wales.
Held every Wednesday, during the its peak season, there can be over 50 stalls trading on the market. People from all over the Llyn regularly visit the market and during the holiday seasons, the market can become very busy.
Over many years, traders travel all around the country to be part of Pwllheli’s market. At one time, traders from the midlands made their way to Pwllheli, knowing that the market offered great opportunities to trade.
The stalls range from fresh fruit & vegetables to high street fashion, mobile phone accessories to household goods, garden plants and flowers to tool. Pwllheli’s market certainly has a lot to offer.
A smaller scale ‘local produce’ market is also held every Sunday.
Stalls typically start trading between 8:30-9:00 and usually pack up and close around 4:30.
The market is held in a central location on the Maes car park, close to the bus stop and other local amenities.
