All Of The Christmas Markets To Visit This Year

 

It’s that time of year when Christmas markets and charity fayres are popping up all around the island, giving us the opportunity to support local makers and small businesses while we enjoy some Christmas shopping... and maybe find a treat for ourselves at the same time!

We’ve missed a few already - cue ‘sad face’ emoji! - so we thought it would be a good idea to pull together a list of shopping events that are coming up over the next few weeks.

Are there more taking place? Get in touch & we'll add them to The List!
