Seasonal stalls swing by Kidlington
Festive foods and precious presents will be on offer at the Kidlington Christmas market on the first Saturday of December.
Scores of traders will pitch their stalls at the yuletide shopping event, which takes place on 3 December. The market is jointly promoted by Cherwell District Council and operator Sketts.
It will be an opportunity to stuff stockings with everything from jewellery to Turkish delight, luxurious cosmetics and artisanal woodwork. Shoppers will be able to stave off the winter weather with hot food and drinks while they browse the stalls and listen to live music.
Cllr George Reynolds, Cherwell’s deputy leader, said: “These markets bring together some of the best traders in the region for these atmospheric and truly special events.
“We all have that friend or relative who is a little bit difficult to choose a present for, and the Christmas markets are the perfect place to get into the festive spirit and be inspired by the gift ideas one might not expect to find in a more commercial shopping environment.
“They are also a great place to stock up on gourmet produce to help host a delicious seasonal spread.”
The markets are also an opportunity to stock up with high-quality, locally made produce such as cakes, jams and puddings. Music will be provided by the Kidlington Concert Brass who will be performing from 11am to 2pm.
