The Marketplace

Open Tue to Thur 9am - 2pm and Fri/Sat 9am - 3pm

We are situated under the old cart shed, which is adjacent to The Raven Hotel by the car park entrance.

To complement the existing array of fabulous independent retailers in Much Wenlock; we opened The Marketplace at the Raven in the winter of 2014; selling fresh fish, fruit, and vegetables. In the winter of 2015, we then launched The Marketplace shop – selling an array of larder products, artisan bread, savoury tartlets and sweet treats to enjoy in the shop or take away.

We are currently renovating The Marketplace shop putting bi-fold doors across the cart shed to allow us to make the most of the beautiful space while maintaining the building’s character and features.

We focus on supplying the best of both worlds…sourcing locally where possible getting eggs and in season fruit and vegetables from local farms and sources.

We also fill the Marketplace with the freshest product from Birmingham market which is renowned for its array of fish, seafood, fruit and vegetables (prioritising British where possible).

Fish and seafood availability depends on the daily catches but will include varieties such as mackerel, red mullet, hake, sea bass, salmon, scallops, cod, haddock, tuna, brill, monkfish, prawns, mussels, lobsters and soft shell crabs. The fish is fully prepared by our Hotel chefs to ensure we maintain a high quality of product – for those wanting advice on cooking and serving the fish this too is available at The Marketplace.

We also stock fresh vegetables and fruit – sourcing the more unusual and specialist supplies such as super healthy flower sprouts, star fruit, vibrant rainbow chard, and multi-coloured carrots.

For those looking for specific fish or fresh produce, we will be delighted to source this for you. We would recommend you contact us a few days in advance of when you need the items so we can speak to our suppliers.
