Bedale Markets

Weekly Tuesday Market

Tuesday is Market Day in Bedale and it has been for over 750 years! Why not come and experience Bedale's fine georgian-fronted, cobbled market place filled with the stalls and the sounds of Bedale Market. The market hosts a range of local suppliers offering fresh fish, fruit and vegetables, locally baked bread, household supplies, clothes, cards, cakes and other goods to attract the shopper. Bedale Market is truly at the heart of the community.

Living History

Bedale market is one of the longest running markets in Yorkshire. In 1251 King Henry III granted a Market Charter to Alan, son of Brian of the Manor of Bedale to hold a market every Tuesday and a three day fair once a year on the Feast of the Ascention (40 days after Easter Sunday). In 2006 the 1251 Market Charter was conveyed (passed on) to Bedale Town Council which is now responsible for hosting the event each week.

Bedale's Medieval Market Cross dates from the early14th Century.

Special Markets

Building on the success and history of the market in the town the Town Council organises a weekly Car Boot Sale on Bedale Park every Saturday from March to October.

Special Event Markets take place at various times through the year; to Celebrate Yorkshire Day in the first week of August, an Autumn Market in October and a Christmas Festival Event Market to mark the start of the Christmas Season.
