Situated in the heart of Newport is Europe's biggest indoor market regeneration. It offers a unique shopping experience and a diverse community of food and drink traders, independent stalls and lifestyle units - all under one historic roof.

This impressive Victorian structure retains nearly all of its striking historical features, making it the perfect place to explore, meet, eat, drink and shop.

Newport Market is rich in heritage, and has been central to Newport life since 1854 when it had a bustling community of market gardeners, farmers, allotment growers and butchers. The indoor market was built to replace the previous market building that was too small to cope with the growth of trade in the town.

Today, the regeneration has given the Grade-II listed market a brighter and more sustainable future. Revamping the existing historical structure with a contemporary interior and showcasing a diverse mix of traders and unique spaces to create a vibrant community hub - a market for the 21st century.

The market is filled with unique independent businesses selling a wealth of produce ranging from fresh farm goods to artisan confectionery.
