The 8th annual Deepdale Christmas Market takes place on Friday 2nd, Saturday 3rd and Sunday 4th December in the ever lovely village Burnham Deepdale. Visitors to the market can enjoy ‘Not on the high street’ presents, decorations, food and drink in three large marquees around the Dalegate Market site, and amongst the pews in St Mary’s Church.
There can’t be a better reason to visit the North Norfolk Coast in the Winter, when over one hundred local artisans and producers gather for one of East Anglia’s best seasonal markets.
“We welcome back established favourites and first timers, as the application list for stalls grows year on year. We like to give new stalls a chance, and to mix up the locations to keep customer interest. Look out for tasty treats, wreaths, cheese, penguin pictures, soaps, homewares, biscuits, chutneys, jewellery, accessories, toys, books, salamis, tea, beer, cordials, glass, bags, photographs … Something for every budget, every present list, and every taste.” said Jason Borthwick.
Estelle Townshend added, “We look forward to supporting a number of charities through the weekend, including Wells Community Hospital Trust, Break, Brancaster Primary School and St Mary’s Church.”
This year there will be lots more food. Deepdale Cafe, pizzas, pies, crepes, duck wraps, mulled wine, hot chocolate, burgers, real ales, sloe gin, Christmas punch, brownies … You definitely won’t go hungry or thirsty, plenty of places to refuel to continue with the Christmas shopping.
As always, entrance is FREE to the event, so no emptying your pockets before the shopping begins. And as usual, there is FREE car parking in the farm yard of Deepdale Farm and in a grass field on Dalegate Lane. The Coasthopper bus also drops off right outside the door.
Deepdale Christmas Market is open from 12noon to 7pm on Friday 2nd, giving a chance for late night shopping. Then 10am to 4pm on both Saturday 3rd & Sunday 4th.
Full details of the stall selection can be found on the website: www.deepdalechristmasmarket.co.uk and the entertainment programme will be announced a few weeks before the Market.
