History of Gravesend Borough Market

Gravesend Borough Market was chartered in 1268 and is one of the oldest markets in Kent.

For many years, the covered market was the premier destination for people in search of a bargain in the area. Weekend crowds travelling from near and far would flock to the town centre to get their shopping, whether it was groceries or household goods. While bargain hunting was the draw, some came just for the entertainment.

Gravesend Borough Market is situated in the heart of Gravesend town centre, just off the High Street and over looks the panoramic views of the River Thames.

The market in Gravesend is a new addition to the many other great markets in Kent. Aligned along each side of the newly-refurbished interior of the market are 16 permanent shops selling unique gifts, products and services including beauty, fashion, pet accessories, antiques and vintage, food and drinks, electronic repairs and more. Meet our traders.

Gravesend Borough Market re-opened to the public on Saturday the 3 December 2016. In February 2016 the historic market underwent a major refurbishment by Gravesham Borough Council with the assistance of £1.8 Million Coastal Communities Funding from the Government.

The extensive works were completed by Kent refurbishment specialists, Faithdean PLC.
