The Hovingham Village Market celebrated its 10th birthday in 2019 with over 120 Markets since October 2009.
There have been over 10,000 visitors to the market in the last year and with at least 60 stalls each time, there is definitely plenty to see. The Market boasts a unique combination of indoor and outdoor stalls offering local produce, crafts and promoting local community groups.
A Community Café, run by a local community group for each market, provides valuable sustenance to visitors, stallholders and volunteers; serving wonderful bacon butties, homemade cakes, drinks and special items unique to each Hovingham Village Market. These cafes have raised over £130,000 with 100% of funds raised going to these local good causes.
The initial objective of the Market has been achieved – to provide a safe monthly community forum for both communities local to Hovingham as well as visitors from all Yorkshire Ridings and further afield.
There have been many local and national awards in the last decade; several for its “green credentials”, promoting local products, reusable packaging and low impact on our environment.
Everyone is welcome to visit the market; held on the first Saturday of each month from February to December, with an Extra Special Christmas Market on the third Saturday of December.
