Fowey Christmas Market


Town Quay, Fowey, Cornwall, PL23 1AT
Fowey Christmas Market


A weekend of festive entertainment, food and drink along with plenty of opportunities to pick up some great Christmas gifts in the stunning riverside location of Fowey. 

What happens?

The event started in 2005, and has grown into arguably the most exciting and best Christmas Market in Cornwall. It has become so successful that it is now staged on two sites to cope with the demand from traders. 

Visitors to the event, who come from all over Cornwall, Devon and beyond, will have a massive choice of over 100 visiting traders offering quality gifts and produce.

How can you take part?

In the marquees on the Town Quay check out the locally made food, drink and crafts while in the Town Hall you’ll find handmade cushions, slate clocks, driftwood Christmas trees, local watercolours and many other local crafts. There will be some 60 traders on Town Quay, and a similar number at the Leisure Centre. There is a continuous bus service between the two sites and the main car park.

There are many hostelries, cafes and restaurants in town to tempt you, many offering seasonal speciality dishes. Live entertainment will abound both in town and at the Leisure Centre, so come to visit us for the 15th Fowey Christmas Market.
