We are delighted to announce that we are going to bring you a variety of events over the next few months and more. Whilst we are at the beginning of our event journey, we hope you will stick with us and help us out by supporting our events to ensure they are successful and can therefore continue in the future.

To start off our events programme, we have decided to hold a Summer Market, with artisan crafters showcasing their products for you to purchase over a full weekend whilst enjoying our gorgeous new coffee shop building and hopefully enjoy a cuppa on the sunny patio! We are hoping to have some entertainment to create a fantastic atmosphere and we are expecting the event to be a huge success!

We’re aiming to minimise duplication of stalls, so we’re looking for a range of businesses – crafts, food, art, toys, anything goes! 

When?events at thirsk garden centre

The Market will take place on Saturday 20th and Sunday 21st August; it’s your choice which days you would like to attend. 

The Market will be open to customers from 9am until 5pm on Saturday and 10am until 4pm on Sunday.

You will be able to set up your stall between 4pm and 5pm the night before, or from 8am in the morning. 


The Market will be held in our gorgeous new Coffee Shop extension, which will be decorated for the occasion. It is easily accessible from the goods in at the back of the centre, where we have free parking available for you. 

How much?

The cost of a stall is £30 per day, or £50 for two days. This includes a 6ft table and two chairs, two drinks per stall holder, a cake and electricity supply if needed. 

No deposit is required. The full amount will be paid in advance to secure your place, however this can be cancelled and refunded in full if you change your mind, up until the 31st July 2022. 

You will need to have your own liability insurance; we will ask for your certificates nearer to the event. You will have plenty of time to get this set up if you don’t have any already.

We will be doing lots of internal and external advertising for the market, starting in July and we ask stall holders to help us promote the event too. We will send you advertising images nearer the time to share.

We look forward to receiving your application.
