Christmas Market

Welcome to Allerdale's festive virtual market

We want to help and promote our fabulous Allerdale businesses as much as possible and encourage customers to shop local. So we put a call out for people to let us know about their businesses and what festive deals they have to offer and these are the lovely folks who got in touch!

Please note that all of the businesses featured on this page are either based in Allerdale or are regular traders on an Allerdale Borough Council market and / or the Taste Cumbria Food Festival.

If you would like to appear, don’t worry, you haven’t missed the boat. Please get in touch and we will send you a form to fill in – All forms must be in by Friday 10th December 2021.
