Special and Occasional Markets - Darlington

Darlington Markets also run various speciality and occasional markets, throughout the year.

These include French, Italian, German and other continental markets. We have recently held markets representing countries further afield, including Tunisian.

A major market held in August is the Summer Market Spectacular. This superb event is run over four days and has hundreds of stalls filling the pedestrianised town centre, selling everything from continental products, crafts, eco goods, with other attractions such as a pot fair and farmers' market.

The range of stalls has improved year by year, with additional attractions including an antiques fair, garden festival, a medieval market and a charity day.

The Spectacular also includes a full programme of street entertainment and music, and fairground rides creating a carnival atmosphere.

The Summer Market Spectacular was awarded ‘Market of the Year’ in 2008 by the National Association of British Market Authorities (NABMA).
