There are few things that can get you into the festive spirit better than a trip to a Christmas market. There is something so magical about sipping a warming mulled wine while stocking up on beautiful gifts for friends and family, as Christmas songs play merrily in the background. For many, the Christmas build-up isn’t complete without a trip to a festive market.

If you are looking for a Christmas market in Derby this year, you are spoiled for choice. On 3 December, visitors can head to The Pavilion in Moor Lane for the third annual It’s That Time of Year Christmas Market. Popular characters, entertainers, and a host of small business will be there. Derby’s Christmas Craft and Flea Market, which will take place on 26 November from 10am to 4pm at the city’s museum and art gallery, is the perfect place to stock up on unique indie gifts. A Winter Wonderland Craft Fair will take place at Artcore Gallery in Albert Street on 24 and 25 November.

Outside the city, Matlock Victorian Christmas Market, which runs from 1 to 3 December, promises to be a festive food lover’s paradise, while Chatsworth House in Bakewell hosts its magical market on 24 and 25 November.
