12 Nov 2019

Are you dreaming of a white Christmas… with mulled wine, fairy lights and Christmas markets galore?

Well there’s no need to jump on a plane to find it (minus the ‘white’ part), because here in Adelaide we have some of the best Christmas markets Australia has to offer! Here are some of our top picks for 2019.

Fullarton Christmas Fair

If you are looking for beautifully hand made crafts then you can’t go past the Fullarton Christmas Fair.  From humble beginnings on the front verandah of a friend's house to the Fullarton Park Centre, the fair has buyers coming back every year for the local ‘crafties’ products.

When: 16 – 17 November 2019, 9am – 4pm
Where: Fullarton Park Community Centre, 411 Fullarton Rd, Fullarton

Glenelg Sunset Markets

Although not officially a ‘Christmas market’ (controversial), the Glenelg Sunset Markets made the list because they’re awesome. Just think summer vibes, beach, delicious local eats, live music and local artisans pedalling their wares. What’s not to love?

When: 24 November 2019 and 8 December 2019, 4.30pm – 8.30pm

Heralded as the largest market event for Adelaide over the December Christmas period, the Bazaar extends out onto South Boulevard to include a street style market, plus over 100 stalls inside the iconic brick dairy. One to put in your diary, in fact, it’s worth blocking out the entire day for this gem!

Gathered Christmas Design Market, Hahndorf
