We Love The Shambles Market

We Love The Shambles Market

Why not visit the atmospheric Shambles Market in York?  
We love it because there’s always a great mix of stalls to browse, take a look at…

Cottingley Gin Yorkshire born, vegetarian & magical! 

Ponder over what to buy from Purepallets for gorgeous reclaimed wooden gifts & homewares, 

Beautiful clothes from Copper and White. 

Amazing artwork from Stavesart 

Then be sure to stock up on the best fresh fruit and veg from the locally loved Sheila’s Greengrocers!

Why not team your veg with some fresh fish from Cross of York , or for meat lovers head to Swains Butchers for the best in town!  

If that’s left you al little peckish you cannot miss a trip to the market’s food court where a host of delights await you; from sweet or savoury galettes from Krep Truck to Yorkshire’s best burgers from The Taylor Made Kitchen.

Take home some freshly baked bread from Bluebird bakery and how about a little sweet treat for the journey home from That Fudge Guy.

There’s plenty of insta worthy shots to be taken too of the medieval buildings at the Shambles Market shopping experience!
