Sheffield’s Festivities: All You Need to Know About This Year’s Christmas Market

The holiday season is upon us! And what better way to celebrate it than by visiting Sheffield’s Annual Christmas Market?

Good news! We’re being treated to an extended market this year. Usually concentrated in Fargate and Peace Gardens, the Market this year will run along Fargate and through Peace Gardens as usual but, this time, it will also stretch down to The Moor. Opening on 18th November until 24th December, the Market will run from 10am to 6pm on Sundays to Thursdays, and 10am to 8pm on Fridays and Saturdays.

The Market will host over 50 log cabin stalls, over 80% of which will house locally based traders, ranging from trinkets to street food and drinks. With two Alpine Bars (open from 10am-10pm everyday) at Peace Gardens and The Moor, the Markets promise to be the perfect place to enjoy a hot chocolate or mulled wine in the run up to Christmas. Hungry? The Market has you covered. With vendors such as German sausage for your currywurst fix, Yorkshire pudding wraps, tornado potatoes and churros, there’s plenty to take your fancy.

The big man himself, Santa, will again be hosted with his elves at his Grotto on the edge of the Peace Gardens to meet all of Sheffield’s good girls and boys, ready to hear their Christmas wishlists. The doors will be open between 10am to 6pm on weekdays, 10am to 7pm on Saturdays, and 11am to 6pm on Sundays. Also returning is the big wheel, relocated onto The Moor to offer a different view of the city!

Not forgetting the wonderful vendors offering special gifts for loved ones, the Market will be the perfect place to pick up a unique gift from a locally based trader.

With a delightful selection of food and festivities, the Market has something for everyone and will be a merry time for all. The Markets will be bringing the festive spirit with the huge variety of stalls, combined with Sheffield’s fantastic Christmas lights and, of course, plenty of Christmas tunes blasting out.
