Situated at the eastern edge of the market town of Hawes in Wensleydale, this Dales livestock auction mart conducts sales on a weekly basis (on Tuesdays) 52 weeks of the year with many additional special sales during the busy autumn sales period.
The mart serves a large area of the Yorkshire Dales and surrounding moorland, and provides a meeting place where farmers do business marketing their sheep and cattle.
Established on the current site over 100 years ago Hawes Farmers’ Auction Mart has considerable experience in livestock marketing. Prior to that sales would take place in the market place itself with animals tethered in the street. The livestock from the area is renowned for its quality, with many buyers returning year after year from all parts of the country.
Other services offered by the auction mart include a property/land agency, farm sales, livestock and entitlement trading, farmers advice bureau, and all types of valuation work.
The mart welcomes visitors and it is well worth a visit as part of the local tourist scene to see the spectacle of a live auction or even just to sample the excellent home cooking in our mart café.
