A Special Place to Visit

Spend some time at the Covered Market at the Old Dairy.

Come and visit our many interesting stalls, some new and some established.

Jewellery new and antique, collectables, hand painted furniture, Disney gifts, darts and snooker cues, handbags and purses, fashion accessories, handmade gifts, wool and haberdashery, books, vaping items and even a clairvoyant.

Enjoy our market Cafe breakfasts, lunches and homemade cakes. We have plenty of seating indoors and in the summer months make the most of our outdoor seating area.

A Market with a Difference

Clacton Covered Market was established in 1982 and is now the longest serving market in Clacton. There is so much more to do and see now we have given ourselves a new look.

Make enquiries at the Wool stall to join our Knit and Natter afternoons and our Crochet Days, all in a comfortable secluded area specially designed for Knitting and Crochet Groups and Craft Groups.

We have a dedicated space for people to come along and play some traditional board games we have available - if you don't know how to play some of them then Robert will show you the ropes!

Thinking of Starting Your Own Business?

Clacton Covered Market is an ideal place to start your business, with very reasonable start-up rents that give aspiring business people a chance to get their business off the ground.

Inside the market we have stalls that can be rented on a weekly basis and traders can leave their stock permanently. Take advantage of all our stalls being undercover in a warm heated building and a friendly, attractive environment.

The covered market trades from 9am to 5pm, 6 days a week. The outside areas adjacent to the market are available at very low rents to traders that only want to trade on certain days.

For more information go to the Opportunities page or contact Martin or Lesley Croxford on 07799663779 who will be happy to help you get started.

Come and spend some time in our comfortable busy cafe at the heart of the market and try our all day cooked breakfasts (our speciality) and excellent food served throughout the day and of course our gorgeous home-made cakes and scones made by Rachel every day.

Open 6 days a week , Monday to Saturday....a special place to visit
