Truro has BIG Christmas Market plans


Truro Farmers Market is joining forces with Truro BID to bring a local shopping experience with a “magical atmosphere” to the city this festive season.

The BIG Christmas Market will run from November 24 through to December 24 on Lemon Quay and will feature a revolving selection of the finest local food, drink, arts and crafts.

Abi Steel from Visit Truro, which is supporting the month-long market, said: “We want to make this Christmas both special and safe here in Truro, and an open-air market featuring fantastic local produce is a great way of achieving that.”

Truro Farmers Market is a cooperative of local producers which was formed in 1999; the market trades from Lemon Quay in Truro every Wednesday and Saturday, and on The Moor in Falmouth every Tuesday.

In recent years the market has experienced a resurgence, with a new generation of shoppers discovering the joys of what lies beneath the green and white stripped stalls; it was named one of ‘The Best Outdoor Markets in Britain,’ in The Times this summer, and has also been recognised with a TripAdvisor Travellers Choice Award.

Market coordinator, Stewart Girvan, commented: “We always try and put on a great showcase of the market in the run up to Christmas, but this year our wonderful traders will have a bigger presence than ever before. We can’t wait to bring a magical atmosphere to the heart of the city with The BIG Christmas Market.”

Alun Jones, Truro BID manager, added: “We’re delighted to support The BIG Christmas Market, in addition to which Truro BID will be delivering street food and drink stalls on Boscawen Street on late night shopping Wednesdays and four Saturdays from November 27 onwards.”
