Brighton Open Market

Established in the 1880s, Brighton Open Market has played a pivotal role in Brighton’s history. After a period of decline starting in the 1970s, traders decided to form the Open Market Traders Association and create a renovation plan for the market. This was approved by Brighton and Hove in 2006. A 250-year leasehold on a peppercorn rent was given to a Community Interest Company, ‘Brighton Open Market’, formed in 2011. The market re-opened in 2014.
