Skipton Market is unique in the way it operates. Its history dates back to medieval times, when a Royal Charter from King John granted consent to 'The Lord of the Honour' of Skipton Castle to hold a fair on Skipton High Street.
This consent still holds true today - and the current owner of Skipton Castle grants the rights to hold the market on four days each week.
For many years, the market in Skipton was a place where animals were traded. The town's close association with sheep is reflected in the name. Skipton actually means 'Sheep Town' - so the historic link will always remain.
The trading of animals still takes place, on an almost daily basis, in Skipton - but this trading now takes place in the purpose-built Auction Mart on the outskirts of Town.
