15 December – Sheffield Christmas Market

With more than 50 traders stretching from the Peace Gardens to the bottom of Fargate, Sheffield Christmas Market is the place to shop if you want to treat family and friends to handmade, unique or local gifts this Christmas.

Whether it be leather bags made in Kasmir, chocolate wine, scented candles inspired by the smells of the city’s parks, jewellery made with Sheffield steel or a delicious sweet treat, Sheffield Christmas Market has it all this Christmas.

Make Christmas shopping a festive experience this year – Christmas is about being wrapped up against the crisp air, sparkling lights, and unique gifts – not stuffy shopping centres or brown boxes delivered to the office. Gather your friends, enjoy a mulled wine, and relax into the festive season!
