For the first time ever, Selfridges is hosting an open-air Christmas market!
Several Christmas markets have had to cancel this year thanks to a certain virus, but it looks like our luck is finally changing. Selfridges’ very first Christmas Market is now open, and suddenly we may actually have a December to remember. The Christmas Market on the Mews features nine fabulously festive food trucks curated by the founder of Street Feast, Dominic Cools-Lartigue, which is music to my ears as all I want for Christmas is food. The market is located directly behind Selfridges on Edward Mews and is open to explore now.
Expect the best street food London has to offer, with delectable dishes from all over the world. Whether you’re after a pizza, bratwurst, jerk chicken, arepas, vegan bites or even fruit drizzled in chocolate, they’ve got you covered. There’ll also be plenty of mulled wine, warm apple cider, and hot buttered rum available to keep you nice and toasty. I’ll take one of each…
However, there’s much more than just great food on offer. You’ll also find a cluster of seasonal stalls with Christmas trees, festive decorations and hand-picked gifts to work your way through. And what Christmas market would be complete without fairground rides? Their dizzying helter skelter, tunnel of lights, and other family-friendly attractions will surely keep you entertained. This market is truly the gift that just keeps on giving.
Selfridges store director, Meave Wall, said “We’re very excited to welcome customers back into our London store with the addition of our brilliant new Christmas Market, a destination for visitors to become immersed in the joy of Christmas. With the help of Dominic, we’ve brought together some of the best food traders in London, alongside fairground rides and stalls with gifts from independent British brands.”
The Christmas Market will open daily throughout December, from 4-9pm on weekdays, and 12-9pm on the weekends. I guess Christmas isn’t cancelled after all!
