About the Market

Brecon Market moved to its current site on the edge of town in the heart of the Brecon Beacons National Park in June 1999. The market has a national reputation for its monthly sales of suckler bred store cattle, which draws buyers from all over the UK. The sales peak at around 1000 cattle in April and October, which are traditionally un-catalogued sales.
