11 Dec 12 to 16 Dec 12
Truro’s Victorian Market is the centrepiece and focal point of the festive celebrations in the City with tens of thousands of visitors attending it over its duration. For six days the huge heated marquee will showcase 70 traders, artisans and producers, all in period Victorian clothing, with a wide variety of high quality food, drink, arts, crafts & gifts.
Now in it’s eighth year, the marquee is divided into two areas: in the Food Hall there are stalls selling everything you need for a festive feast; including meats, cakes, cheeses, chocolates, preserves, beers and wines. In the Art, Crafts & Gifts Hall the varied stalls include jewellery, textiles, photography, original works of art, pottery, metalwork, toys, games and much more. There is a large café and seating area where hot meals and snacks are available and a hog roast is on site during the lunch hours.
Visitors are greeted by the sight of rare breed Wensleydale sheep grazing contentedly in our animal pen (and their owner is happy to discuss his life’s passion). The marquee is heated so, no matter what the weather outside, it’s always warm inside. For the Wednesday evening we stay open till 9pm and offer a feast of entertainment; from the traditional walk-through of the nationally renowned Camborne Youth Band to our ever-inventive stilt walkers surprising and delighting young and old alike.
There are up to a further 50 stalls offering visitors the chance to sample even more of the friendly atmosphere of Truro during the street markets for Wednesday late night shopping (12th) and all day on Saturday (16th).
Shop for unique gifts in a unique environment. Savour the sights, sounds and smells of a bygone era.
