Helmsley and Pickering outdoor markets

The Council operates markets in Pickering (Monday) and Helmsley (Friday). Please note, you need to bring you own stall when trading on these markets.

Traders are able to rent a pitch on local markets, subject to payment of the required fee and production of required documentation (insurance etc.). Pitches may be available for rent on the day or by a regular arrangement.

Anyone wishing to trade on either a casual or regular basis must complete a Trading Agreement (PDF, 3 pages, 379kb) and read the Market Rules (PDF, 10 pages, 144kb) and return the agreement to , or post to Markets, Ryedale District Council, Ryedale House, Malton, YO17 7HH. We will consider what you sell and whether there are similar traders on the market. If you are offered the opportunity to trade on the markets, you must have read the Market Rules and completed a Trading Agreement.

Pitch fees for 2017/18 are £25.
