Boscombe Market Pricing Structure



Boscombe sits in the centre of the Bournemouth conurbation, with award winning gardens and golden beaches a short distance away. Over 400,000 people live in the Bournemouth, Christchurch and Poole conurbation with 191,400 in Bournemouth itself.

Bournemouth is also home to two universities with over 20,000 students enrolled each year. Bournemouth is also one of the largest centres for foreign students in the UK with over 30,000 students visiting the town each year.

And last, but not least, AFC Bournemouth’s Vitality football ground is just a few hundred yards away from the centre of Boscombe, with the potential to encourage fans to bring their families and stay longer when their team visit the area.

More reasons to trade on Boscombe Market

Following major investment from Bournemouth Council and the Coastal BID in 2015, Boscombe Market has benefited from:

  1. Brand new blue and white gazebos which are available for stallholders to use, free of charge
  2. Over 100 new improved pitches are available, some with access to electricity
  3. Six permanent pitches are available to rent seven days a week.

Boscombe Market now has over 100 pitches. Many of these are taken by regular traders, some of whom have been on the market for almost 25 years, but there is always space for new traders to come alongside. For further details see...

We also have permission to run specialist markets on other days of the week.
