Hobbycraft Reveals the Best Christmas Markets in London for Handmade Gifts

The much-loved craft retailer Hobbycraft has teamed up with Pedddle to reveal some of the not-to-be-missed Christmas markets in London, where shoppers can find some incredible handmade gifts, along with enjoying treats galore.

Pedddle is an easy-to-use online directory championing small businesses selling at markets and helping customers to find them. Founder Nicki Capewell says, “We are hearing from organisers and stallholders alike that they expect Christmas markets to be bustling this year.”

She continues, “We know that shoppers love to be able to touch and feel the products they’re checking out, especially when it comes to handmade gifts, and there’s no better way to do this than buying directly from makers themselves. Our list includes some hidden gems that will be sure to delight locals looking to support small businesses this Christmas.”
