Sydney is about to get jolly as the Cambridge Markets gear up to host several Christmas markets throughout November and December. From Pittwater to Sydney’s CBD, the Cambridge Christmas Markets promise to illuminate Sydney with festive joy.

“It will be our biggest season of Christmas markets yet,” says Cambridge Markets founder and director Madelienne Anderson. “We are so excited to bring these markets to locations across the city and introduce new and existing audiences to a brilliant range of small retailers. Everyone loves a good Christmas market and these will be the best on offer in Sydney, and across Australia.”

“Each of these events is different in its own way. The beach markets have a very chilled coastal vibe, while the city markets are quite arty and urban,” says Madelienne.
