The town Markets are also a regular feature in the High Street - visiting Tuesdays, Fridays and Saturdays.

Brewood dates back to Anglo-Saxon times and became a notable market town following the Norman Conquest. The town's national significance declined during the 19th century, having been greatly affected by the Agricultural and Industrial Revolutions. On the positive side, today's village has changed relatively little since then, although the population has expanded. Brewood retains its original character and has been designated a Conservation Area. There are many listed buildings: half-timbered old houses and cottages in the traditional black-and-white style, lie alongside dignified houses of the Georgian and Queen Anne period. It is difficult to isolate any for special mention, but Dean Street is particularly appealing, providing a very attractive setting for the Parish Church of St Mary, the Virgin, and St. Chad. Brewood is much loved by canal folk and pleasure cruisers. The Shropshire Union Canal (also designated as a Conservation Area) runs through the village, which offers a unique route to the walled city of Chester. The village provides a pleasing selection of shops and public houses, as well as restaurants and tea rooms. There are many local attractions, and events all year round.
