The Wednesday street market in Maengwyn Street attracts many from far and wide with its great variety of traders and craftsmen. A charter granted in 1291 by Edward 1 gave the right to hold "a market at Machynlleth every Wednesday for ever and two fairs every year.” The market has always been successful and as far back as 1613 nearby towns complained that it affected their trade. The town also boasts a wide selection of independent shops, so very different from the usual collection of national retail chains found in most towns. They include a butchers, a greengrocers, vegetarian / whole foods store, jewellers with fine Celtic offerings, several cafes, takeaways and public houses (pubs), an art gallery, and an alternative therapy practitioner. Also on Maengwyn Street is Parliament House and the Owain Glyndwr Centre.
