*The Outdoor Market will not be open Saturday 9th July 2022 due to Durham Miners' Gala*
Every Saturday, the Market Place is transformed by up to 30 small independent traders…it becomes a traditional, bustling, fresh air market and a great shopping experience.
Open from 9am to 4pm, visitors can shop for food and drink, clothing and fashion accessories, toiletries and make-up, homewares, home decor and more. It’s great for gifts and ideal for weekend essentials. There is also a selection of take-away food vendors and a hot take-away drinks stall so pop by for lunch or a snack. Regular traders are profiled at the Durham Markets website, please click through to find more from their own website or social media pages.
All traders are small independent businesses – what’s great about shopping with these businesses is that anything you spend is then ploughed into the local economy and that’s good for all of us. And, because the person at the stall operates their own businesses, they know about what they’re selling. Come and chat, ask questions, find out more about …for instance …where your food comes from, or where a beer is brewed.
The Saturday Outdoor Market is open throughout the year. If you’d like to become a trader at this market, please follow the link to Durham Markets website.
