Wood Street Christmas market, Wakefield

I was impressed when I went to the first Wood Street market back in July.

It certainly seemed the organisers had achieved their aim of bringing a bit of life back to a forgotten corner of Wakefield and showcasing independent sellers.

The next two markets went on to be a success, so I was pleased to hear they were upping the ante with a Christmas market in a new location.

Its new home at Merchant Gate – a new development of apartments, offices and retails spaces, many still to be let – lent itself to four distinct shopping areas around a central courtyard with street food and a Christmas tree village.

Each part of the market had a different theme – vintage, Nordic, evergreen and frost – and all had their own, great musicians. Alongside the shopping there was a pop up cinema and an art gallery.

Perhaps a more ambitious undertaking than before, but Wood Street Market lost none of its cosy charm, despite being on tour and in a more industrial setting.

I really have a soft spot for this little market and its easy blend of stalls, food and fun. Each event adds a little more to the mix and no matter what the ingredient, it seems to make it richer. I’m looking forward to next year’s markets already!

Love, Anna
