Shop & Drop Delivers New Shopping Experience

Darlington Indoor Market is launching a brand new shopping service in the lead up to Christmas this year.
From Saturday 8 December 2018, shoppers coming to buy their fresh meat, groceries and produce from the independent market traders, will be able to leave their shopping and come back later with their car to collect their shopping from the designated parking bay in Tubwell Row.

World food day

Darlington World Food Day Event – 27th October

After being postponed on the 13th October due to unsafe wind levels, Darlington’s World Food Day Market went ahead this weekend.
