Truro Christmas Street Markets 2016

For the eleventh consecutive year we are pleased to be providing Christmas street markets in the city of Truro. In conjunction with Totally Truro we are holding FOUR events. These will be Wednesday evening Christmas markets from 5.00 pm till 9.00 pm. Dates are 30th November, 7th, 14th and 21st December.

Please note that the Truro BIDS Committee (the commissioning authority for these events) has decided that they do not want any street closures on the Saturdays in Truro and therefore there will be no markets or Christmas activities on public highways in Truro on Saturdays this year.

DME will be organising this popular annual event again in 2016. Aussie Marquees are, as in previous years, kindly donating the use of the marquee for up to 30 charities to raise funds and awareness of their causes.

About us 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 and Event Power SW 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!

Do you want to become an exhibitor at the Christmas markets?

Although the 2015 event is "by invitation only" Deborah Martyn Events Limited is always on the lookout for good quality artists, photographers, craftspeople and food producers who share our vision of providing quality products at reasonable prices. Our vendors have all passed rigorous quality controls and are regularly subjected to spot inspections, and only the best are accepted. 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!
