The Ultimate Christmas Market has arrived


Sydney’s premium market operators, Cambridge Markets, is for the first time hosting a huge Christmas market at the Entertainment Quarter, Moore Park.

The Cambridge Christmas Market at EQ will comprise more than 150 high-quality boutique stalls selling an incredible range of goods especially for Christmas, including homewares, fashion, festive food and toys. EQ’s exceptional retailers will also be a significant part of the market. 

The Saturday event, from 8am-5pm will also offer gourmet hot food, craft and local beers and wines from EQ’s own The Urban Winery, activities for children and live music. There will be a wintery Christmas exhibit courtesy of Off-Piste Ski and Snowboard complete with Santa and “snow”.

This year’s stallholders will offer a huge range of unique, quality and handmade goods. The range of items includes beautiful linen and clothing from 2 Duck Trading, women’s fashion from I Love Libby, Venetia Elaine, teen activewear from Zuu, sandals from Holly & Hide, childrenswear from Paris Daisy Couture, and toys from LZ Gifts, Goat Nation and JC Creative Toys, beauty products from Crazy Beautiful Botanics, Wanderess Beauty, Emporium of Natural and Guna Natural, hats from Perez, handmade porcelain from Samantha Robinson, and wrapping paper, wreaths and cards from Wrappsody among a plethora of others.

As well, there will be gourmet food from some of Sydney’s hottest al fresco vendors including Rio Barra, Mojo Picon, China Dragon, Brooklyn Boy Bagels, Taste of Ethiopia, Michelle’s Gozleme, Pho Bay Noodle, Backyard Burgers and more.

The market will also offer a wonderful selection of Christmas-themed goods including candles, wreaths, wrapping paper, cards, fresh Christmas trees and ornaments, plus festive foods such as (pre-order) hams, turkeys, ducks, chickens, puddings and Christmas cakes, sauces, preserves, condiments, gingerbread houses, nuts and chocolates.

Cambridge Markets’ curator Rebecca Fox said: “For the first time our wonderful regular stallholders will come together with the EQ retailers and a whole lot of boutique traders to form one lovely Christmas market.

“We very much believe in the shop small, shop local philosophy, and encourage consumers to get out of the shopping malls into the outdoors to experience this market.

“Its a whole day out. There is stuff for kids to do, you can shop, you can eat, you can talk to stallholders, have a Christmas drink and do your Christmas food shopping too. You can get your meats, your cheese, your festive nuts, your fruit and veg, desserts, and of course flowers, rather than running around to a lot of different locations.

“Shopping this way makes Christmas fun rather than a chore.”

EQ spokesperson Meredith Mallory says she is pleased that retailers and market stallholders would be coming together in one space in celebration of Christmas.

“This will be an excellent day for shoppers who want to come and see what EQ has to offer and experience some genuine community spirit,” she says.
