Little Bird Artisan Markets will be coming home for Christmas as they end their 2022 run of markets in their hometown of Ripon this Sunday before traders hang up their gazebos for the holidays. They will also be in Thirsk this weekend for their final markets of the year. After Sunday all members of the team and traders will be having a well-deserved rest to enjoy the holidays.

This follows one of their busiest weekends, which saw 5 markets across 2 days and over 290 traders set up in Easingwold, Wetherby, Northallerton, and a 2-day event in Harrogate Valley Gardens. With many traders reporting record sales, food stalls selling out of popular items, and lots of positive feedback and comments from customers, it was a great weekend for everyone.

Managing Director, Jackie Crozier said, “December has been a busy month for us with 10 markets in 3 weekends. All events have been a great success and that’s thanks to our amazing traders and everyone who has come along and visited one of the markets and supported the small business that trade with us. Also, thanks to all the Councils we have worked in partnership with to allow us to deliver events in such great locations. This weekend might be our last markets of the year, but they will be a great day out and a chance for people to finish their shopping and I can’t think of a better place to finish than in my hometown.”

The markets on Sunday will be a great opportunity to grab some last-minute presents or to stock up on local food and drink to enjoy throughout the holidays. The markets will be full of festive cheer and have everything you need to finish your shopping list from clothes, homeware, last-minute decorations, children’s toys, candles, art, photography, crafts, and much more! There will also be lots of treats, hot chocolate, and mulled wine to keep you cosy as you browse the stalls, so grab a friend, your family, and even your dog and come along.

The markets might be coming to an end for this year, but don’t worry Little Bird already have a list of dates for 2023 and lots more opportunities to visit your nearest market. For up-to-date information on the dates and locations sign up to the Little Birds mail list on their website.
