Media Release – Thursday 26 September
Yep, it’s a little crazy but Christmas is now under three months away so it’s time to start planning what you need and where you’ll get it from. And Canberra’s multi award winning Old Bus Depot Markets will once again be spreading the Christmas cheer with special Christmas markets on during December.
“The Markets will be open every Saturday and Sunday in December in the lead up to Christmas Day, starting with our first Christmas market on Sunday 1 December,” said Old Bus Depot Markets Director, Diane Hinds.
“You can come along and stock up on decorations, food and gifts for family and friends, without all the crowds and same old mass produced gifts you find in shopping centres.
“With so many of our products made lovingly and carefully by hand, you can find presents and decorations that have meaning, and will last,” Diane continued.
The Christmas markets always offer a festive ambience, friendly stallholders and happy crowd enjoying the cheerful buzz. This year visitors will find everything they need for Christmas including unique and handcrafted gifts for loved ones, wreaths, table centre pieces, candles, handmade stockings and advent calendars.
“And of course, delicious Christmas food! Where to start with cakes, gingerbread houses, mince tarts, puddings, shortbread, party dips, cheeses and more,” Diane continued.
Carol Rowe from Let’s make Cake will have her gorgeous range of handmade Christmas cakes including some exquisitely decorated with tiny marzipan fruits, and some shaped like Christmas bells. Megan Cooper of St Nicholas Christmas Trees, who has been going to the markets for many years, will also be there with her range of outstanding fresh Christmas trees which last the whole Christmas season.
“Visit us for Christmas at the Old Bus Depot Markets. We’ve got all of your Christmas season needs under the one roof,” concluded Diane.
