Highlights
The first Valorant Night Market of the year is already here on the last day of January 2024.
This Valorant Night Market is scheduled to run for almost an entire month, about 28 days in total.
The Valorant Night Market will not include any recent skins from collections that were released in the past two months.

Nothing gets Valorant players more excited than the arrival of the Night Market in the game client. It is one of the best ways for players to get their hands on discounted in-game cosmetics and very rare skins at lower prices. The level of discount in the store depends on how rare the item is. This concept is inspired by the “Your Shop” in League of Legends, a limited-time, one-stop shop for players to purchase in-game cosmetics at discounts. 

It should be noted that the last Valorant Night Market was released on 13th December 2023 and lasted 26 days before concluding on 8th January 2024. Now, after a few weeks' time, this beloved rotating shop has made its way back in Valorant.

Here's all we know about the first Valorant Night Market of 2024!


Is the First Night Market of 2024 Already Live?

Yes, the first Night Market of 2024 went live on 31st January at 8 PM ET / 1 AM BST / 5:30 AM IST / 2 AM CET. This Episode 8 Act 3 Valorant Night Market began on 31st January and will run through to the last week of February. Here are some key dates to remember:

  • Valorant Night Market Release Date: 31st January 2024

  • Valorant Night Market End Date: 28th February 2024

  • Valorant Night Market Duration: 28 Days


Introducing this rotating shop on 22nd January, Riot Games said, "The deals come out at dusk. Night. Market’s right around the corner. 31/01/24."

Keep in mind that players cannot access it after 28th February and will have to wait for it to return in a month or two’s time. Valorant Night Market generally appears every eight weeks and stays around for anywhere between three to four weeks.


Once the Night Market is available, players can see their customized selection of skins via an indicator in the main menu. Players need to note that the Valorant Night Market does not include recent skin releases so they cannot expect to see any skin collections that were released in the past two months.

One major drawback of this feature is its randomness. Even though the skins will be available for a longer period, there is no way to guarantee the skins you want. The randomness of the Valorant Night Market can be frustrating since you may not get good skins or cosmetics that you want to potentially play with. Contrastingly, in League of Legends, the skins in Your Shop are presented to each player depending on their account activity. However, there is no such system in place for players in Valorant.

Valorant Night Market: January 2024

The Night Market can be accessed by navigating to the top right of the opening screen in Valorant and you can identify it easily. Once you are in the Market, you can click on the cards presented to you to reveal what skins are underneath. The color of the card’s background is an indicator of what cosmetic tier the skin belongs to.
