Shopping, Food & Drink

As a market town, Bishop’s Stortford’s history goes back a thousand years.

The town offers everything to meet your day-to-day needs including Waitrose and Sainsbury’s, as well as favourite high street shops in and around Jackson’s Square shopping centre.

The focal point at the heart of the town, the market square is where the twice weekly market is held, as well as a farmers’ market once a month. You will find a wide choice of coffee spots, pubs and restaurants including Skew Champagne and Oyster Bar, Gourmeturk and Host, with its attractive roof terrace at the landmark Corn Exchange.
