Gibside Market

Whether you're looking for treats for the kitchen cupboards, a gift for a special someone, or perhaps simply to treat yourself - and why not? - Gibside Market can help.

  • Booking not needed
  • Free event (admission applies)

Every first and third Saturday of each month at Gibside's Market Place you'll find various stalls where you can buy fresh seasonal foods and high quality crafts direct from local producers. There's fresh meat, handmade soap, contemporary ceramics, locally made honey, fresh bread, and lots more. After all that shopping how about a meander through the Walled Garden?...

What is Gift Aid?

Most of our places run the Gift Aid on Entry scheme at their admission points. Under this scheme, if you're not a member you have the choice of two entry tickets:

  • Gift Aid Admission or
  • Standard admission

If the place runs Gift Aid on Entry, we'll offer you the Gift Aid Admission prices. But it's entirely up to you which ticket you choose. If you want the Standard Admission instead, just let us know when you come to pay.

Gift Aid Admission includes a 10 per cent or more voluntary donation. Gift Aid Admissions let us reclaim tax on the whole amount paid* — an extra 25 per cent — potentially a very significant boost to our places' funds.

An extra £1 paid under the scheme can be worth over £3 to the National Trust as shown below: Payment of the additional percentage donation is entirely voluntary, so if you prefer to pay the standard admission please advise our reception staff at the till point.

  Gift Aid Standard
Amount paid by visitor £11.00 £10.00
Tax refund from Government* £2.75 £0.00
Total received by the National Trust £13.75 £10.00
