Christmas Market Stallholder Applications Open


Summerhall’s annual Christmas Market returns for another year as part of our Big Christmas Weekend.

As we did last year, we will be offering the option for stallholders to book either a one or two-day pitch within our market venues the Dissection Room, Main Hall and Library Gallery.

Taking place on Saturday 7th and Sunday 8th December, the Christmas Market will host a line-up of Edinburgh and Scotland’s best independent makers, as well as tasty food stands and entertainment throughout the day.

Successful applicants will be charged £150 +VAT for two days of trade or £100+ VAT for one day of trade.

We have a limited number of stalls available for the Christmas Market and completion of the application form does not guarantee a space.

Our Christmas Market Events Team review all stallholder applications and will offer stalls to a select number of applicants. They work hard to ensure that Summerhall’s Christmas Market includes a variety of stallholders, and reflects some of the very best independent makers that Edinburgh and Scotland has to offer.
