Unwrapping the Sheffield Christmas Markets 2016
From a handful of festive stalls taking up a small section of Fargate to a winter wonderland experience of 50 log cabins, the Sheffield Christmas Markets are back – bigger and better than ever!
Naturally, an abundance of seasonal fare is on offer to fill bellies and warm cockles – think the whole mulled wine, hot chocolate and roasted chestnuts shebang. But that’s just the tip of the iceberg as there will also be a range of street food on offer, with guest traders serving up everything from traditional German sausages to pizza, steaks, venison burgers and much more!
The famous Sleigh Bar is back again, an all-new Santa’s Grotto can be found at the heart of the action and the vast array of stalls means that you’ll be able to find a gift to suit pretty much anyone. The market will be open daily, 10am-6pm, right up until Christmas Eve, and The Sleigh Bar will be open 10am-10pm.
Just a snapshot of what there is to see and do this year…
Back with a bigger, better grotto to keep the main man comfortable throughout the month, the kids can meet Santa before he heads out for his big night shift. Each child gets a pre-Chrimbo gift and a professional photographer will be on-hand to take a family snap, which will be available to purchase afterwards.
Grab a tree
The Tree Amigo have been providing the people of Sheffield with a unique selection of handpicked, sustainably farmed Christmas trees for the best part of fifteen years. Balancing quality with affordable pricing, it’s an ideal place to pick your perfect tree this year.
Set the scene
Returning for their second year, The Sheffield Candle Company sell small batches of handmade luxury fragrance candles. Last year’s favourite, Christmas Pine & Spices, will be back alongside new fragrance Sweet Amaretto Nog and other popular scents Dark Roast Coffee, Endcliffe Park and Bakewell Tart. They will also be selling a range of bath/massage oils and rooms sprays.
Whet your whistle
And what would a Sheffield Christmas Market be without the famous Sleigh Bar nestled at the top of Fargate? Serving hot mulled wine and spiced cider, mince pies and a good range of ales and craft beers to keep the punters happy, it’s where the Exposed team tend to plot up for a good chunk of December.
Some foodie inspiration
Our sister company, Meze Publishing, will also have a stall at the markets selling their stunning cook books – these will include the brand new Sheffield Cook Book: Second Helpings and the official Henderson’s Relish Cook Book.
