Four Christmas artisan markets will be taking place across the Harrogate district in the weekends leading up to Christmas.

Little Bird Made will be delivering 10 markets in total across North Yorkshire, featuring over 100 traders each day. And the outdoor artisan markets kick off at Harrogate's Valley Gardens, Ripon's Market Square and Langthorpe Farm Shop in Boroughbridge this weekend. There will also be a Christmas market in Knaresborough on Sunday 19th December.

Little Bird Made, Director Jackie Crozier said:

"We are looking forward to the month ahead and can’t wait to bring our Festive Markets to the variety of venues across the area.

"This weekend will see over 100 traders setting up each day at our markets in Harrogate, Boroughbridge and Ripon.

"This is one of our busiest times of the year, I’m sure by the time we get to Christmas, both staff and traders will be needing some well-earned time off to relax and recuperate, but we wouldn’t have it any other way."
