The Marketplace

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

Orders can be placed of fresh fish, fruit, veg, bread, and larder goods alongside our marketplace opening hours. Orders need to be placed before 11.00 am a minimum of the day before desired to ensure we can get sufficient stock in the shop to fulfill all orders and provide the lovely locals of Much Wenlock and the surrounding areas with all their weekly necessities.

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 renovated our Marketplace in November 2019. Having bi-fold doors put 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).

We sell the best locally baked bread from bread2bake of Ludlow and family run business in the foodie heart of Shropshire.

Fish and seafood availability depends on the daily catches but will include varieties such as mackerel, hake, sea bass, salmon, scallops, cod, haddock, tuna, monkfish, prawns, mussels, dressed crab, plaice and lemon sole. Unless sole, while 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.

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.
