Christmas is coming…and the elves are busy for the 2011 Christmas Markets

14 November, 2011

Yep, it’s a little scary, but yes, Christmas is coming! But don’t worry,the Old Bus Depot Markets has their little Christmas elves busy for what will be some fantastic Christmas markets in 2011.

We will be open every Saturday and Sunday – including Christmas Eve – in the lead up to Christmas, promising original, handmade gifts for your loved ones, and all within a vibrant market buzzing with the Christmas spirit.

At the Christmas Markets visitors can browse and buy beautifully handcrafted, personalised home wares and gifts, scrumptious Christmas fare such as gingerbread houses, cakes and cherries, gifts for the table and the tree, exquisite hand carved decorations, live Christmas trees, art, soaps and plenty of stocking stuffers.

This year, new stallholders will present their own take on popular Christmas items including handmade Christmas stockings and advent calendars, Christmas wreaths, brooches and table centres. Foodies will love the spread available including beautifully decorated Christmas sugar cookies, mince tarts, shortbread, Christmas cakes, puddings, pan forte, whisky marmalade, traditional Russian fruit and walnut log and macarons inspired by the flavours of Christmas.
