The sixth Harrogate Christmas Market is again a total sell-out, with all 200 stalls being booked.

The stores will be mostly ran by Yorkshire-based Traders, offering a wide range of British-made gifts, clothes, jewellery, food and drink.

The four-day event runs from Thursday, November 16th to Sunday, November 19th in the centre of Harrogate.

Organiser Brian Dunsby, who leads the team of volunteers, said: "The positive feedback from last year's traders made us think we would have high demand again this year, but it has once again exceeded all expectations.

"This enables us to be very selective about our traders, so we choose those who are based in or near Yorkshire, offering British produce and products which can't be found on the high street.

"As well as giving them an opportunity to reach a new audience, it makes the Harrogate Christmas Market a unique experience for our visitors."

"The Food and Drink Marquee is now full of independent local producers with small stalls around the walls, and plenty of tables and chairs in the middle for visitors to rest, whilst enjoying a wide choice of hot and cold food, and non-alcoholic drinks.

“A new feature this year will be a ‘Trader Display Awards’ with Gold and Silver Certificates being awarded to the most attractive and customer-friendly stalls - look for them displayed on winning stalls!”

As parking in Harrogate is limited, visitors are being urged to use the buses or trains to Harrogate Bus and Train station, from where free shuttle buses will run to the Market and back every 10 minutes each day.

Over 110 coach groups have already booked to visit the Market this year from all over the UK, so anyone living outside Harrogate should ask their local coach operators if they have any seats left!
