Richmond Market

Market Place Richmond North Yorkshire DL10 4RT

Richmond has been a market town since medieval times – the vast Market Place gives a clue to its former glories – and it's still worth coinciding with market day, Saturday, when fruit, veg and other stalls set up, together with an espresso cart, and cheese, meat and fish vans. The outdoor market runs year-round (joined by a farmers' market on the third Saturday of the month), but there's also a daily indoor market in the lovely old stone building (dated 1854) that sits just off Market Place. This is a bit more of an arts, craft and gift market – wool and yarn to clothes and accessories – though you can usually buy farm-fresh eggs and other produce, and there's a small café here too. Sundays from Easter until October see craft fairs held inside the market building as well.
