Seasonal delights

Fowey Christmas Market is back for another year, ready to fill your holidays with true festivities.

It is that time of year again, where we embrace the festive spirit and immerse ourselves in the wonder that is the Fowey Christmas Market. Sponsored by Shop Cornish and supported by us here at Cornwall Living, this year’s market is due to take place on the 2nd, 3rd and 4th of December 2022. The town itself is awash with a delightful array of shops, cafés and pubs, many of which are dog friendly, so there is no need to leave your four-legged family friend behind. This means a whole day out for the entire family, stopping for lunch and maybe even dinner to sample the local delicacies, with the added bonus of free parking on Saturday in Main Carpark Fowey. The town mini bus is also on hand to transport visitors to outer carparks and into the town centre. With all this on offer there’s really no reason not to enjoy yourself in this quaint harbour town.

Each year this magical event draws thousands of attendees, all enamoured with the prospect of finding the perfect gift for themselves or a loved one. Wrapping up warm, visitors spend hours delighting themselves with mulled wine, roasted chestnuts, seasonal music and a smorgasbord of quality products and produce.

Fowey Christmas Market comes highly recommended and you are guaranteed to leave with your arms chock full of gifts just waiting to put a smile on the faces of those closest to you. This year you’ll find at least 80 quality regional traders across the venues of Fowey Town Quay, Albert Quay and Web Street, all waiting with bated breath to show you their wares and delight in making your Christmas dreams come true. If this wasn’t enough, Santa will also be arriving by tugboat, moments before the town band Christmas parade, leading right up to the light switch on. There is also an elf trail for kids, and street performers! So step into the magic this Christmas and get lost in the world of the Fowey Christmas Market, you will not be disappointed.
