Since the granting of a Market Charter by King Henry III in 1251, there has been a market in Bedale’s cobbled market place every Tuesday. The current market has stalls including fresh and hand-made foods, clothes, plants, crafts and other delights, and Bedale Town Council is committed to see the town’s historic market prosper.
New traders wishing to ‘stand’ on Bedale Market, either permanently or on a casual basis, should contact the Market Superintendent, via the council's email or on 07396 387987. The market is operated on a ‘one-line’ basis with a restriction (at the moment) on duplicate stalls, and all traders are encouraged to stand on a permanent basis - permanent traders are guaranteed a pitch in a set location and are charged discounted rents.
If you have not visited Bedale Tuesday Market recently, why not pop into the town and see for yourself?
