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...

After browsing the stalls you can take a break in the cafe or continue shopping in Gibside's shop or escape for a walk.

Live music, great shopping atmosphere
