Our History

Burnley Market’s history is almost as long and varied as Burnley itself. Dating back to at least 1294 Burnley has been a market town, with weekly farmers’ markets that brought together the community. It offered the population of the small hamlet the chance to buy the wares of local families, pedlars and travelling traders. 

Over the years the market changed not only location but also its offer. With the advent of the industrial revolution and the boom this brought to Burnley’s population and wealth, the market became even more important to the residents and moved to a purpose-built home at the bottom of Manchester Road. 

The town continued to change and eventually this meant a new home was needed for the market, a purpose-built building was constructed right in the heart of the new town centre development in 1969.

50 years on Burnley Market is still a hive of activity, is still a centre of business, is still a place that brings the community together and is still at the heart of Burnley Town Centre.
