A second Christmas market is to be staged in Harrogate on the first weekend of December.
The statement added that subject to an acceptable event management plan, the artisan market will feature around 60 local traders and producers.
The stalls will sell a variety of festive arts and crafts, clothing, homeware, jewellery, as well as locally produced food and drink.

It will accompany the new Harrogate Christmas Fayre, organised across town by Market Place Europe, which will run from December 3 until December 12.
The fayre will see 50 stalls erected in Cambridge Street, Market Place, Station Square and Cambridge Crescent.
Little Bird Made’s website says its markets offer a “diverse, quality, shopping experience that celebrates independent producers”.
Ripon resident Jackie Crozier, who set up Little Bird Made in 2018, said:
“I am delighted to be working with Harrogate Borough Council to bring an additional Christmas market to Harrogate this year.
“Our markets showcase some of Yorkshire’s finest small businesses and are a great opportunity to bring some festive cheer and buy that special gift for the holidays.
“We are always looking for new traders to join our growing portfolio of markets, so anyone looking for a stall should get in touch.”
Cllr Andy Paraskos, cabinet member for environment, waste reduction and recycling, said:
“We’ve said for some time that we want to ensure festive cheer returns to Harrogate town centre this year and I’m delighted that Little Bird Made will complement Market Place Europe’s offering.
“They provide fantastic artisan markets that showcase the best home-grown traders and producers and I’m confident there will be something for everyone. I’m eager to see what will be on offer.
“Hopefully this leads to a longer-term relationship with Little Bird to deliver a monthly artisan market in the Valley Gardens in the future.”
