a "Cultural Asset" by the UK Arts Council
In 2015: Celebrating ELEVEN years at the top.
Welcome. On these pages we aim to provide you with a useful resource that can help you, the public, plan your Christmas shopping trips to the many markets and fairs that we organise over the festive period in and around the wonderful city of Truro, capital of Cornwall.
Use the navigation bar on the left to find the information that you want:
"Christmas Markets" takes you to a listing of our events and it is there that you can find dates, opening hours and other details of each event. Each market is different and the descriptions will help you decide which ones are the best for you to visit.

Howard Carter, Exhibitor at previous Victorian Markets
trurochristmasmarkets.com is operated by Deborah Martyn Events Limited, a company that has been running markets, food fairs, arts & craft shows and exhibitions since Christmas 2003.
We are a family run business and work closely with our partners at Totally Truro, Truro City Council, Aussie Marquees, Penhaligon Systems and Round the Clock Security to deliver good quality events that people want to visit time and time again.
About our exhibitors
Deborah Martyn Events Limited has garnered a reputation for quality events with quality products. This has been achieved by vetting everyone who wants to trade at our events. Food producers, artists, craftspeople and other prospective traders and producers all have to submit samples of their products to us so that we can assess that they meet the levels of quality and value that we demand.
Once allowed to participate in our markets, traders and producers are subject to continual assessment, both for their product range and for their attitude and dealings with the public. Anyone who does not meet our high standards of customer service is removed from our "Approved Trader" list. Therefore, visitors to our markets can be assured of both good quality products and a friendly smile!
About our events
We provide the best Christmas markets in the South West. These include the SEVEN Christmas Street Markets held in the run up to the big day, the six day visual extravaganza of the Truro Victorian Christmas Market*, and the three day shopping frenzy just before Christmas that we call "The Last Chance Show".
*NAMED AS THE 5th BEST CHRISTMAS MARKET IN THE UK BY A NATIONAL MAGAZINE*
*Camping Magazine, December 2012.
Do you want to become an exhibitor at the Christmas markets?

If you want to get involved as an exhibitor you can email us and tell us why you think your product is good enough for this event. We will need references!
