The Best Sydney CHRISTMAS MARKETS [2022]

We may not have the glorious tradition of European Christmas markets in Sydney, but we do have some fantastic options and these are increasing every year. So start planning your Christmas shopping and hit up one of these markets soon.

Along with these Sydney Christmas Markets running across the city beginning in October, all your favourite regular markets will probably have Christmas stalls. In a hurry, skip to the bottom where we have listed the markets in date order.

Don’t miss our guide to all the fun Christmas events in Sydney this year.

Sydney Christmas Markets in CBD and inner city

Le Jolly Market

Bringing the magic of a French Christmas market to Sydney’s Custom House. Le Jolly Market will allow you to immerse yourself in the French-European Christmas vibes while you shop, wine & dine in front of Customs House. 

Authentic wood huts, lights and candles, snow falling, jazz music, and all the necessary magic to experience a white Christmas.

Market stalls will offer everything from Christmas snow globes to children’s toys and gifts for mum and dad.

There will also be a range of gourmet food and drinks perfect for the Christmas table,including high quality French gourmet products and local and French wines.

French Christmas Market

Pop in on the way home from work for some Christmas eats with family and friends. Each night at 8pm, in front of the giant Christmas tree, listen to classic Christmas jazz music (with some tunes in French), sing or dance under the snow falling and perhaps steal a kiss under the mistletoe that will mark the entry gates!

Just, let us not forget the mistletoe! Each entry arch of the event will be covered with mistletoe- kiss and share the Christmas cheer.
