Barking Market (also called Barking Town Centre Market) is a market located in Barking in the London Borough of Barking and Dagenham in East London, England.[1] It operates on Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday.[2][3]

Barking has an ancient market right issued between 1175 and 1179.[4] The market declined in the 18th century and has since been revived. The current market dates from 1991 and was expanded in 2001.[1]

It is located on East Street, Barking and is operated by Barking and Dagenham Council.

It is not to be confused with Dagenham Sunday Market[5], which takes its name from Dagenham where it used to be located in Chequers Lane, but which has been in Barking, near Creekmouth, since 2002.
