Your local market - in the heart of Boscombe

Boscombe Market is Bournemouth’s only regular fresh food market operating from 9am-5pm every Thursday and Saturday throughout the year. Boscombe Market is a breath of fresh air in an age of packaged supermarket aisles, with fresh fruit and vegetables, from the exotic to the everyday, responsibly sourced meat, fresh fish landed daily from Brixham, all served by larger than life characters who will happily give you tips on preparation and recipe ideas.

Established in 1992, the market has become the ‘Go to’ venue for the widest range of fresh produce at affordable prices, and has become a mecca for chefs and passionate amateur cooks and those who just happen to love eating and drinking.

Freshly prepared and served ‘Street Food’ is becoming increasingly popular, and you’ll find hot and tasty dishes from India, Thailand, Brazil and traditional British dishes from burgers and pies to fish and chips. There’s also wonderfully decadent pastries, waffles and cakes.

Apart from food you’ll also find clothing, jewellery, plants, flowers and so much more... it’s all at Boscombe Open Air Market on the pedestrian precinct, in front of the Sovereign Shopping Centre.

Make a day of it... with two undercover shopping centres, including the beautiful Victorian Royal Arcade, high street stores, great choice of cafes and restaurants, beautiful beaches and gardens. All on level access, served by many local bus services and with ample parking for cars, and just three miles from the centre of Bournemouth.
