The Christmas market was full of a range of great stalls.... brilliant gift ideas, high quality crafts and local produce (ranging from Yorkshire pork pies and cheeses to jams, chutneys and Yorkshire gin). Thor's Beer Tent was a cosy retreat.... Would definitely recommend!

A beautiful city, full to overflowing with things top see and do, this was our first trip to York. York Minster is so wonderful, the pictures on TV do not do it justice. We visited some of the other local Churches, St Nicholas Church was having a Christmas fair, this showcased things from around the area, we bought some beautiful... More

Called in at the Christmas market on a very busy Saturday. This is a very traditional German Market with a great range of food stalls and traditional gifts. If the top of the Shambles is too busy call by the Viking Center which also has a good selection of stalls.

Nice little street market selling a variety of fresh local produce together with a mix of non-food stalls. Well worth a look, as looking is free!

Slightly odd review as I am mixing this market with the add on market at Christmas. Both are very good if you want to buy loads of things you dont need!! Nice to walk round and gaze at the produce. No idea if any of it is value for money as didnt need any more cheese, mulled wine, net curtains... More

... there's nothing NOT to like about the stalls in this place. Not the best flea market I've ever walked through. but I enjoyed browsing and I found a lovely fox-fur hat for my wife. Lots of good food stalls too for take-away treats. Go ahead - let yourself go!
