Whether you play survival mode in Minecraft in single-player mode or with other players, digging for resources and special items is always an adventure.

How Long Does it Take for Villagers to Restock Trades in Minecraft?

Villager traders will restock their wares twice per Minecraft day. Basically, you can buy everything from them at the beginning of the day between 9-10 AM, and then before the end of the day, a restock will happen when you can do the same. But if you bought everything the traders have twice in the same day, you will have to wait until the next day for the next restock.

An entire Minecraft day in the game lasts 20 minutes in real time. This means that you will be able to trade with villagers every 10 minutes for maximum efficiency. I solved this by setting a countdown on my phone to remind me every 10 minutes.

Also, in order for a Villager to restock for the next day, they will need to sleep. Usually, in randomly spawned settlements, they have their own beds, but you can sometimes help them out by building more. Like, “Here is a bed. Go to sleep so we can trade more in the morning!”
