Roll up, roll up for your Christmas bargains

Christmas shoppers need look no further than Chesterfield markets for their festive food and presents this year.

Chesterfield Borough Council is holding extra markets in the run-up to Christmas with a variety of produce from local suppliers and special present ideas.

There will be a market taking place each day from Thursday 8 December until Christmas Eve, Saturday 24 December.

This will include the monthly farmers’ market on Thursday 8 December and the weekly flea market each Thursday.

There will also be a Christmas special Chesterfield artisan market on Sunday 18 December in association with The Market Co.

Since it began in spring 2015, the artisan market has attracted people with the very finest produce from local providers and also top-quality craft items.

Chesterfield Market Hall will be open each day, including Sunday 11 and Sunday 18 December – selected traders will be open on Sundays.

Councillor Amanda Serjeant, Chesterfield Borough Council’s cabinet member for town centre and visitor economy, said: “Christmas shopping can be a bind for many families, running around trying to find the perfect presents and the finest food but people need look no further than Chesterfield town centre.

“Come along and support Chesterfield traders by shopping local in our markets, Market Hall and shops in Chesterfield town centre.”
