Ripon Market

Address

Market Place, Ripon, HG4 1BW

Opening hours

Thur: 8am - 3pm
Sat (small market): 8am - 2pm

Ripon’s market goes to the heart of its character and takes place within the central market square. The market fills with stalls from local traders and features a broad range of goods and local produce.

The traditional fruit and veg offering is well represented but this is just the start, you will also find fishmongers, cheesemongers, confectioners and freshly made baked goods including mouthwatering pastries and pasties.

In addition, a selection of homewares, hardware and pet supplies are available as well as a wide range of other items.

This full market takes place every Thursday, but a smaller market also takes place on Saturday where you can pick up the essentials, fruit and veg, fresh flowers and butchers’ items.

A market of tradition

Ripon market dates its history back to at least the 11th century.  In another Ripon tradition that goes back almost 700 years, the Ripon Bellman formally opens the market at 11 am – though the stalls will have opened trading from around 8 am.

This tradition dates back to a control on trading from visiting traders who had to take second place in selling their corn to the local farmers who could sell without limitation.

The Ripon Bellringer is now a ceremonial role, acting much like a town crier for significant town events.
