Welcome to Durham Markets.

 

Durham Markets Company has been operating markets in Durham City since 1851.

 

We own and operate Durham Market Hall, winner of Best Private Market in the UK, as well as operating a variety of other markets and events, both in Durham and in the North East. These include:

Plus occasional Continental Markets, Evening Markets and Sunday and Bank Holiday Markets in the Market Place.


Also, coming up on 30th August, we have a special market of local food and drink producers in the Cloisters of Durham Cathedral.  It will be open from 10am to 4pm, and is part of Durham Flower Show, being held in Houghall College, with supporting events in the Cathedral.
