The government sponsored ‘Portas Review’ claims that markets bring a town to life and that “there’s a market for us all”. This philosophy is very much part of the thinking behind the wide range of exciting markets taking place in Ipswich,  organised either directly by Ipswich Borough Council or in partnership with other organisations.

Ipswich Christmas Market

Friday 9 December - 10:00 to 18:00
Saturday 10 December - 10:00 to 18:00
Sunday 11 December - 10:00 to 16:00

This year’s Ipswich Christmas Market, brought to you by Ipswich Borough Council, will feature a rich variety of festive stalls and include a host of exciting activities for the whole family.

An ideal opportunity to buy some great gifts, sample some hot food and drink from the taste-sensational street food market and enjoy some of the lively street entertainment on offer.

The annual Christmas Market will take place from Friday 9th until Sunday 11th December in Ipswich town centre across Princes Street, King Street, Giles Square, Buttermarket and Queen Street areas.

For more information please visit www.ipswichentertains.co.uk/christmas, or email events@ipswich.gov.uk.

And don't forget the Ipswich Cornhill Market, which operates every Tuesday, Thursday, Friday and Saturday. It is situated mainly on the Cornhill in front of the Town Hall, but also spreads down towards Princes Street and up to the Lloyds Avenue arch.
