As always, this year it will be held in the town’s Market Square – whilst the surrounding lanes and cobbled courtyards will be “filled with delights.”

The market will run on Saturday 4th and Sunday 5th December from 10am-5pm.

What stalls will there be?

Lots of local produce will be on show for visitors to dive into, whether it’s edible, drinkable or something perfect as a gift.

Cheeses, sweets, chocolate, premium drinks and various scarves, hats and other knitwear are just some of the things on offer.
