Our Christmas Eve Sunday Market gives you another chance to pick up any last-minute gifts or just relax and enjoy the festive atmosphere.
In addition to the special Christmas Markets, our regular weekly markets continue to run every Thursday, Saturday and Sunday – plus Ely Farmers’ Market on every second and fourth Saturday. Each of these markets has a mixture of craft, food and vintage stalls – plus fresh produce, meat, fish and more.
During the festive season, every market is a Christmas Market. On Thursdays, Saturdays and Sundays there is always a wonderful mix of arts and crafts by local makers sitting alongside local produce and artisan food. We’re well known for our street food from around the world and there’s plenty of space to sit and relax and enjoy the festive atmosphere.
