a Historic Market Town in the county of Staffordshire

About Lichfield

Your Business Here! - Sponsor our Lichfield pages, click here.
The Lichfield Markets have been held on the historic Market Square since King Stephen granted the first charter for a market in 1153.

In the past martyrs were burnt at the stake and these events are recorded on plaques on St Mary’s Church overlooking the Market Square.

The Market Square is overlooked by the Johnson’s Birthplace Museum – where Dr Johnson, writer of the first authoritative English Dictionary, was born in 1709. His statue and that of his biographer, James Boswell, look down on the market today.

General markets are held each week on Tuesday, Friday and Saturday with up to 52 stalls selling a wide variety of reasonably priced goods and produce from reputable and reliable market traders.

An established and authentic Farmers’ and Craft Market is held on the first Thursday of the month and has, depending on the season, between 32 - 40 stalls.
