What is on offer at the market?

The very popular St Nicholas Fair offers a Christmas experience for the family with wintry alpine chalets running through the city centre.

Each stall will be stocked full of one-of-a-kind products from stocking fillers to delicious festive treats.

There will be the hot drink stall where you can enjoy a glass of mulled wine or hot chocolate whilst taking a relaxing stroll through the historic Shambles Market.

The market will also include a wide range of local independent products including Yorkshire flat caps to tasty cakes and hand-made trinkets.

The food stalls provide a cuisine for every taste bud, whether that’s Moroccan wraps, deliciou Thai food or a classic burrito.

You can take a well deserved break from shopping by sitting in the cosy setting of Thor’s Tipi.
