St Albans Christmas Market

St Albans knows a thing or two about markets, having one of the oldest regular markets in the UK, dating back to the 9th century. So what better City to hold a European-style Christmas Market?

St Albans would like to extend a very warm welcome to visitors of its Christmas Market, a magical and unforgettable experience.

Christmas Market launch event

Friday 28th November St Albans' European-style Christmas Market is opening on Thursday 27 November. On Friday 28th November there will be an opening celebration for all the family. Join us and get in the festive spirit with live music and street entertainment around Market Place including three special appearances by Bjorn the polar bear. At 19:00 in Vintry Garden, Cllr Geoff Harrison, The Right Worshipful Mayor of the City and District of St Albans, will cut the ribbon and formally declare the market open.

List of Exhibitors

We've done our best to find a fantastic selection of traders bringing you the best
of British-made and international wares. We've focused on the quirky, the handmade, the unique and individual and we hope you’ll find something for everyone on your list, from pocket-money toys and stocking fillers to beautiful statement pieces for your home.

More vendors will be added each day, so check back to see what’s in store, and join us from the 27th November for 25 days of festive shopping, with a brilliant programme of seasonal entertainment for all the family.

While the market is on we’ll be using social media to update you on stalls that are newly arrived, and any that you should hurry to catch before they leave. Please ‘like’ St Albans Christmas Market on Facebook or follow us on Twitter - we’re @StAXmasMarket – to stay up-to-date with the latest developments.
