Skipton Market, Skipton
(3.2/5 based on 75+ reviews on the web)
In 1204 a Charter was granted allowing a weekly market, trading in sheep and woollen goods.

Today the Market Charter is held by the owners of Skipton Castle who grant the right to hold the market 4 days a week.

On cobbled streets the centuries old traditional market trades throughout the year, offering an interesting range of stalls selling fresh produce to clothing and much more.

Market Days offer something for everyone, set on both sides of the High Street, you will be sure to find something for you.

Market Days: Monday, Wednesday, Friday and Saturday.

Stalls are usually in place by 9:30am and clear away from about 4:30pm.

Actual market times are dependent upon the weather conditions on any one day.

  • skipton market is more or less the same as any other market around with all the usual stalls including plenty of tat it is worth a visit just but nothing special 
  • Market is worth a visit - mostly sweets, jewellery and food all very cheap and excellent value. The town has a bustling high street with lots of lovely tea rooms and cafes 
  • Spent a couple of hours perusing the stalls which is one of the biggest markets I've seen in a northern town. A good variety of good on sale at reasonable prices.
