Visit East Yorkshire are delighted to announce that a brand-new Christmas market is coming to Beverley! Taking place from Monday 13 to Friday 17 December, ‘The Made in East Yorkshire Christmas Market’ will celebrate the very best produce that East Yorkshire’s local businesses have to offer.
The market will take place in Saturday Market area, opening at 10am and finishing at 8pm each evening with an array of festive entertainment and activities planned throughout the whole week as well as late night shopping within the town.
The Made in East Yorkshire Christmas Market will follow the iconic Beverley Festival of Christmas which will be returning to celebrate its 25th year on Sunday 12 December and these additional markets combined with the weekly Saturday Market will mark a whole week of celebration festivities for the traditional market town of Beverley.
The extended market is a fantastic opportunity to promote and support local businesses and also an extended opportunity to welcome people into Beverley should they not be able to make the Festival of Christmas. The town’s evening economy is also set to see a benefit on what promises to be an exciting end to the year.
East Yorkshire Events continue to monitor the government guidelines regarding COVID-19 and will ensure the market can be brought to the town in a responsible and COVID-secure manner.
Councillor Jane Evison, portfolio holder for economic development and tourism at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, said: "It is terrific to hear the ‘Made in East Yorkshire Christmas Market’ in Beverley has now been confirmed and I’m sure it will be a fantastic addition to a truly joyful time of the year. Of course we are all looking forward to the Festival of Christmas returning after a year away, but this additional market week will give even more residents and visitors to East Yorkshire the opportunity to experience what our local businesses have to offer as we all get into the festive spirit.”
