Royston Town Market   

A Brief History of Royston Market

The market town of Royston was awarded its Charter during the time of Richard I (1189). Icknield Way, Ermine Street, High Street and King Street marked the original areas of the market until gradually the buildings in the centre of the streets became permanent buildings and the market was moved to its current position today on Market Hill.

The market operates on a Wednesday and Saturday with trading starting at 8am and finishing at approximately 3.30pm.
