Welcome to

After last year’s successful debut, we are holding the Christmas Market in Ingatestone again this year on Sunday 8th December.

We are extending the site and are including ready assembled stalls as well as pitches so there is room for more stallholders. Overall there will be between 50 and 60 stalls at the event.

We are now taking bookings and if you are interested in taking part this year and would like a stall or pitch or have any questions, email us at
contact-our-office@ingatestonechristmasmarket.com or  go to the “Get Involved” section of this site and send in an application form.

Outside in the large parking area surrounding the Ingatestone Community Centre there will be stalls ( a lot of local traders and businesses) selling:

 - Variety of festive items - Crafts, gifts, jewellery, toys, decorations, home, lifestyle and wellbeing products, clothing and clothing accessories, pet treats and gifts

- Cold food will include - Breads, cakes, pies, cheeses, sausages, bacon, pickles, chutneys, specialist Xmas puddings, amazing fudge, chocolate (including a chocolate fountain) and other confectionery

- Hot food  available will include - hog roast, burgers, Abi's Deli's pizzas, Indian Banquet, german sausages, US style BBQ sandwiches, waffles, donuts and chocolate! Stalls will also be selling mulled wine, prosecco and flavoured gins and vodkas to drink on site and bottles and gift sets to take away.

Inside the Community Centre, there will be more stalls selling a variety of Christmas products. Hot food will also be available inside and the Community Club licensed bar will also be open.

For younger kids there will be a chance to meet Santa on the site or in his Grotto, which will be open from (tbc) 1pm till 5:30 pm. In addition, there will be face painting and balloon twisting.. There will also be Christmas music, with performances on our stage from Anglo-European, the Junior and the Infant schools all taking part as well as the Ingatestone Choral Society.

Many of the High Street shops, restaurants, pubs, and bars in Ingatestone will all be open on the day too and so it will be a much broader family and Christmas shopping experience than just the market itself.
