About the event

Derby Market Place will make a festive transformation to host a traditional Festive Market. Browse a unique range of international stalls selling a fantastic array of unusual crafts, gifts, food and drink.

Derby’s Festive Outdoor Market will return this year with gifts galore and a host of festive stalls to get you in the Christmas spirit! Soak up the atmosphere and browse a range of unique gifts each week including hand-crafted products from locally-owned Benaberry, gifts for both him and her from Darley’s Jewellery, and unique designs from Thunderbug designs, as well as festive food and drink.  It’s the perfect opportunity to do some Christmas shopping, support small businesses and treat yourself to a mince pie. This is one traditional Christmas market not to be missed.

Entry to the Festive Market is free.

Food and drink

Festive food and drink will also be available including turkey and cranberry cobs or brie and cranberry vegetable option from our food stall ‘Urban Pig.’ Alongside this our Festive Market bar will be offering bar drinks with added extras including luxury hot chocolate, Prosecco, mulled wine and cider, hot soup, and liqueur coffee. We will also be joined by ‘Dough to Go’ from the Wed 8 Dec who will be serving wood-fired pizzas to enjoy as you explore the festive market or before joining us for one of our Christmas performances
