Back in 2021 - York River Art Market


2020 Event has been cancelled, but will be back in 2021. Please check the updated dates for 2021 and  keep an eye on our socials and website for any other  updates.

York River Art Market is a unique, award winning, open air Arts market. A true Summer Time gem, not to be missed and a must to add to your Saturday schedule over the Summer. York River Art Market is a weekly event set in a stunning, riverside, city centre location just minutes away from the train station.

YRAM’s relaxed and vibrant atmosphere has been compared to Left Bank in Paris and welcomes all. YRAM is  free of charge to come along and you are free to browse/buy directly from an array of Yorkshire based artists. Meander along the riverside walkway where you will find over 30 x different artists exhibiting their art works along the railings. Our neighbours at the ice cream boat ‘Over the Moo’ and restaurant Starr Inn the City will satisfy your taste buds though you may opt for a picnic besides the river or in the Museum Gardens. Whatever you decide on doing, be sure to come and enjoy this laid-back scene besides the river this Summer.

YRAM hosts a broad range of artists and makers. Expect to find ceramics, jewelry, paintings, prints, photographs, clothing, candles and much more. We care that each of the 10 x Saturday events are never the same and so we host a different variety of creatives each weekend. Which means there is something for everyone’s creative tastes and budget.

YRAM will be back in Summer 2021 and we welcome everyone to come and help us celebrate these fantastic events in this beautiful location. An experience not to be missed whilst you are having a day out in the incredible city of York.

See you besides the river in 2021.
