The best of Sheffield’s alternative Christmas markets

Sheff has a lot to offer this festive season

It's that time of year again. The Sheffield Christmas Market is back at Fargate. Whilst it offers some great food and gifts, you might be after something more exclusive. Luckily, Sheffield also offers a number of one-off independent events. From art to street food, Sheff has it all. Here is our guide to the best alternative markets this December:

1st-2nd December: Peddler

Back for a festive edition of their popular monthly night market, Peddler promises mulled wine and cider and handmade gifts that will make perfect Christmas presents. Expect the warehouse to be suitably decked out in festive decorations, including a Christmas tree. Check out our guide to Peddler to make the most of your time there.

2nd December: Independent Christmas Art Market

Head to the independent Christmas art market at DINA venue if you are looking for some truly unique gifts. Local artists will be selling everything from ceramics to chutneys. It's a great way to support Sheffield-based creatives at the same time as getting some much needed Christmas shopping done.
