Are you in need of some Christmas presents for the family? Here are some local events perfect for this very occasion.

 Petersfield Christmas Festival Market

Come down to the centre of town on Sunday 11th December between 10am and 4pm for the Petersfield Christmas Festival. Hosting an array of awesome market stallholders, brilliant entertainment and thousands of friendly local faces. The festive live music provides a wonderful soundtrack to your Christmas shopping. The perfect way to support the local businesses selling a huge range of wonderful gifts from fudge, pottery, dog accessories, bags, candles and so much more!

Petersfield market

Every Wednesday and Saturday between 8:30am and 3:00pm on the Square is the farmers market, perfect for getting those Christmas presents sorted! Filled with stalls, offering a wide range of food and drink to keep you going, clothing and shoes, tools and plants and loads of other goodies. You can find gifts for everyone, whilst supporting smaller businesses in town, it’s the perfect combination!

Late night shopping Lavant and Chapel Street

As the days get shorter and darker you may not be wanting to be going out as much. Let’s change that shall we! On the 1st of December, a range of independent shops along Lavant Street and Chapel Street have organised to stay open late to give you a perfect shopping session. Come down and support the small, independent shops whilst getting those unique gifts for your loved ones.

Late night shopping Folly Market

Another wonderful late night shopping experience is being hosted in the Folly Market on Saturday 3rd December. Come and join the small independent shops and services for a relaxed evening of shopping, gentle music, refreshments, crafting and perhaps enjoy a tarot or oracle reading. There will also be a charity raffle supporting a charity for the homeless. Bring your family and friends and help support local businesses and enjoy being together in the community.


If none of these tickle your fancy head to the “where to shop” section in our website to go and look at all of the wonderful independent businesses you can shop at this year.
