The plan for Orange Pip Market was forged in late 2014 and took influences from a range of world-class markets such as Borough, Maltby Street and Broadway in London, Brooklyn Flea and Smorgasburg in New York City as well as being inspired by the amazing food producers we see at farmers markets throughout the region.

Launched on a sunny day in May 2016, Orange Pip Market is Middlesbrough’s first artisan food market.

You’ll find us on Baker and Bedford Streets, in the heart of Middlesbrough’s independent district, on the last Saturday of the month from midday to 7pm.

Orange Pip Market is a place where great food, arts and performance come together to make a unique experience for the town and a fantastic way to spend a Saturday.

The market name was taken from a Sherlock Holmes short story, The Tale of the Five Orange Pips by Arthur Conan Doyle. It was chosen as it fits with the turn of the century buildings on the street and bars, Sherlock’s and The Twisted Lip (the name of another short story) – with Baker Street being the common denominator. Look out for our fabulous Orange Pip-related street art at the end of Baker Street!
