Sheffield’s 2017 Christmas market opened on 15 November and has been open every day in the following weeks, running from 10am-6pm Sunday to Wednesday and 10am-8pm Thursday to Saturday.
The stalls are varied; selling food, crafts and gifts. There is something for everyone and it
is a great place to find unique presents that are locally produced.
With over 50 log cabins and stalls, it takes centre stage in the city. This year has also
seen the new addition of large Christmas decorations and stalls in the Peace Gardens which groups can walk through.
The market started with just a few small stands and has grown year upon year.
It features the classic Christmas grotto, a roasted chestnut stand and an outdoor bar, selling mulled wine and cider.
The area becomes particularly festive during the night as the stands light up along with the
large tree outside the town hall.
For those with a sweet tooth there is ample opportunity to fill up on treats, with everything
from crepes, doughnuts and waffles, to sweets, chocolates and cakes.
Sheffield is amongst many other Christmas markets in Yorkshire, with Leeds, York,
Harrogate and Wakefield all having their own in the centre of town.
