Buy a range of food, drinks and crafts in leafy surroundings

Gibside Farmers' Market is a great place to buy fresh, seasonal food direct from local farmers, growers and bakers. Leave the supermarket behind for a great value and enjoyable shopping experience. Taking place twice a month in lovely leafy surroundings - it's very different from a town centre market.

Best of all it's free entry to our market place, cafe and shop on a market day (an admission price remains for wider estate).

Crafts, art, gifts and much more...

Find a unique gift with a range of quality local craft stalls at the market

As well as our food producers, you'll find quality handmade crafts - from artwork to jewellery, plant stalls and regular live music from local Northumberland pipers. This gives the market a unique friendly atmosphere. After browsing the stalls you can take a break in our cafe, continue shopping in Gibside Larder or escape for a walk.

Live music, great shopping atmosphere

Fancy a Bowes burger?

Our tenant farmer at Cut Thorn Farm is currently building a new barn which will enable him to hold more cattle through the year and over winter. This is the first step towards being able to 'finish' his beef at Gibside and sell it through our market and shop. Watch this space for more news!
