The Open Market, Brighton’s covered market destination for your groceries shopping!

One of the many joys of the Open Market in Brighton and Hove is the range of food you can buy to take home. There’s fruit and veg, local produce, cheese and eggs, meat and fish and plenty more.

The main market opening hours are as follows:

Monday to Friday 9am – 5pm
Saturday 10am – 5pm
Sundays 10am – 5pm*
*Some Stalls are not open on Sundays.

The market itself is very easy to get to, with many buses stopping on London Road and Ditchling Road near the Level (you can access it from either entrance). It’s a short walk from the city centre, and 10 minutes on foot from Brighton station.
