Every first and third Saturday of each month, 10am to 4pm, Gibside Market takes place in market place.
It's really quite special because it's a market, held within an 18th century landscape garden. Plus, no two markets are the same.
There could be stalls with fresh food and crafts from local producers (local as in the beef on offer is from the estate farm), bakers and quality handmade crafts, artwork to jewellery, soap to honey and photography.
Best of all, it's free parking and free entry into market place. (Normal admission charges apply for remains for wider estate.)
