Penkridge Poultry Auctions

Auctions have been held on the Market site since the 1930s. This tradition is continued with our monthly sale of Poultry, Eggs, Plants and Garden Sundries

The auction offers a wide range of not only poultry but garden plants, fresh eggs and useful equipment for the garden or small holding.

The auction is open to everyone to buy or sell so it really is an excellent opportuninty to experience a genuine traditional auction.
