About Skipton Artisan Market

Where it began...

Skipton Artisan Market was brought to life by Richard Feather and his wife Sue after reviving the market almost 5 years ago.  ..

Skipton Farmers Market had fallen to the odd few stalls turning up and then ended for a short while, this gave Richard and Sue the opportunity to take the reigns and bring it back to the bustling little gem it has become. The market operates on the 1st and 3rd Sunday of each month and is situated in the idyllic setting of Canal Basin, Skipton. (Please note while covid19 guidelines are with us, this can change at anytime.) Recently the Canal Basin had a fabulous revamp. So what better timing could come, along with the changing of the types of stalls happening to the market, a name change which better suited the various stalls attending, hence, the now new name, Skipton Artisan Market.

The Market is fast building up with a fantastic team of dedicated, talented stallholders bringing with them, some of the most amazing and very best high quality, predominantly homemade/handmade array of unique produce and products.. Whether you want a scrumptious, tasty treat or a beautifully created unique gift, we have something to suit almost everyone

The lovely Helen who is the owner of Stiltwalker’s Stuff featuring Charlotte’s Lovely Things and has had a stall since virtually the beginning of time , has been putting a lot of her own time and effort into getting the markets name out there through social media and through her contacts that she comes across on her travels … Helen also takes the helm if Richard and Sue are away …

Helen and her Husband Dave have now joined us with the online market management, bringing their ideas and lots of behind the scenes work to the Skipton Artisan Market online adventure .

Courtesy of and lots of thanks goes to (Dec) building this website. enabling us to get the market up and running.

Going online...

The idea for Skipton Artisan Market Online has been bantered about for a good while now, it was to be put in place to run alongside the well established outdoor Artisan market in the bear future, but present times, regarding the Covid19 pandemic, has brought the venture forwards, as the feeling all round the stallholders was to keep the outdoor market alive, the stallholders in work and the customers happy, knowing they can still buy their favourite good quality produce and products from the markets regular stallholders.
