Is the market still on Tuesdays and Saturdays?

We will be in Salisbury for a day the first week in November and are trying to decide whether to come on one of the market days. We are thinking of coming on a weekday. What are the market days? Is there any other information you can tell me about the market? Thank you.

Yes, the Market is still on Tuesdays and Saturdays

Be aware that whilst Salisbury market is very popular with local people, is really designed to meet their needs for fresh food, discounted clothes and fancy mobile phone covers (!) rather than being specifically aimed at tourists. If you happen to be in Salisbury on a Tuesday or a Friday it is certainly worth spending 30 minutes or so wandering around the market, but I wouldn't plan your holiday around it.

In addition, this winter Salisbury is also getting a special "Christmas Market" which (according to the blurb) will feature "56 delightful little wooden chalets all beautifully decorated and selling lots of tasteful, high quality gifts and festive goods". However it will only be running between 29th November & 16th December so a bit outside your timescale, but may be of interest to others reading these posts.

P-t-B

Thank you. I had read your previous posts about the market - just wanted to know that there had not been any changes in market days in the last few years.

Market days tend to be very traditional in the UK and are so well known that it is rare for the date to change, particularly if the market is a large one.
