One of the North of England's largest open-air markets, it is open seven days a week, all year round. The market has much to offer from beautiful pottery, artisan breads, crafts, handbags and vintage clothing to locally-sourced fruit, vegetables, plants and flowers, deli cheeses, fresh meat and fish from the Yorkshire coast.

York’s Markets Charters was granted in Saxon 700AD! This meant that a market could be run exclusively in a six mile radius. This charter lasted all the way through Viking and Norman times and is still operational today.
