Christmas is an extra special time at the Market, where people flock from across London to stock up on delicious seasonal produce for their festive tables.

The Market will be open for extra trading days in the run up to Christmas this year, between Thursday 13th December and Monday 24th December, and for New Year, between Thursday 27th and Monday 31st December.

Dressed up as a winter wonderland, bedecked with festive decorations, singing events and seasonal cooking demonstrations, the Market also offers entertainment and local community groups join in the celebrations with carol services and sing-alongs. Spit-roast turkey, mulled wine and Christmas brownies will be available.

A number of the traders are offering seasonal fare, with tastes of Christmas from around the world pitched beneath the Borough Market roof, including Christmas gingerbread and traditional goodies produced by the Cinnamon Tree Bakery to suspend from domestic Christmas trees. Rainha Santa Elvas plums (actually a Portuguese type of greengage), which are cooked then soaked in sugar syrup for six weeks, before being washed and sun-dried, Nutmeg Jam from De La Grenade, Mulled Wine Spice (to mull your own wine) from Spice Mountain and festive mulled cider from New Forest Cider, are among many attractions.
