Shrewsbury Christmas Market to make a return

Chris Davies

There will be stalls in the square from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on December 17 and 18.

The market is a festival of local handicrafts exhibited at the two monthly markets that take place in the square all year round.

Organizer Stuart Jones said: “The Shrewsbury Farmers Market on the first Friday of the month and Made In Shropshire on the second Saturday of the month showcase the best quality produce the area has to offer.

“We only invite local producers to support the local economy, and these producers defy all the elements they are exposed to during the year.”

There is also Hindleys fresh bread, Scottish eggs, sausage rolls, Indian street food and much more.

“This market has developed into one of the best events in the region and gives the city center a real boost.”
