Held every Wednesday and Saturday
on Truro's Lemon Quay and
every Tuesday on the Moor in Falmouth
We invite you to a Cornish Christmas shopping experience in the heart of the festive city!
We are joining forces with Truro BID to bring a local shopping experience with a magical atmosphere to the city this festive season. The BIG Christmas Market will run from 24th November through to 24th December on Lemon Quay, and will feature a revolving selection of the finest local food, drink, arts and crafts.
With all the sights, smells and flavours of a Cornish Christmas, this will be an irresistible invitation to buy from local farmers, small food producers and talented craftspeople. The open-air market format will be both safe and special – and a wonderful showcase of the market in the run up to Christmas. This year our market traders will have a bigger presence in the city than ever before, and we can’t wait to bring a magical atmosphere to Lemon Quay!
In addition, Truro BID will be delivering some street food and drink stalls on Boscawen Street on late night shopping Wednesdays and four Saturdays from 27th November onwards, strengthening Truro’s Christmas offer.
Full details are currently being finalised, but essentially anyone visiting Truro in the month preceding Christmas is in for a treat.
Food lovers will be greeted with an array of tempting stalls; fresh, sustainably-caught fish and shellfish, grass-fed and free range meat from local farmers, artisan dairy products and sought-after store cupboard ingredients.
Drinks aficionados can expect a huge swathe of locally made craft beer, small-batch cider, award-winning wine and artisan spirits from Cornwall’s finest producers.
A treasure-trove of art and craft stalls will feature everything from vintage homewares to willow weaving, handmade soaps to eye-catching jewellery – perfect for picking up unique gifts.
As well as shopping for food supplies, decorations and gifts, visitors can immerse themselves in a proper festive experience, with street food, music and entertainment – in short everything you need to get into the Cornish Christmas spirit.
The BIG Christmas Market will include over 80 traders attending on a revolving basis, and will also be open on Wednesday evenings for late night shopping.
We’re all set for a magical Christmas after the trials and tribulations of the last 18 months, and anticipate that the completion of the Hall For Cornwall development will also bring a special buzz to the city this festive season. We look forward to seeing you there!
