Welcome to Summerhall's Online Christmas Market!

Due to ongoing Covid-19 restrictions, we won’t be hosting a physical Christmas Market in 2020. However, we believe the demand for hand-made goods from local, independent sellers will be just as strong as ever this year (and perhaps even stronger).

So we’re bringing Summerhall’s famous Christmas Market directly to you!

We’ve hand-picked 60 of our favourite independent Scottish sellers and makers, and we’ll be celebrating these amazing local businesses throughout the festive season, with all our stallholders keeping 100% of their profits.

After an incredibly challenging 2020, we’re so excited to offer a bit of light and positivity at the end of the year, and we hope you’ll join us in supporting the brilliant local talent that Scotland has to offer.

Browse the sellers below, and head straight to their websites to purchase gifts for your friends and family (or just a treat for yourself!)

A Quick Appeal:

Normally, our Christmas Market fills Summerhall with the bustle of people busily browsing the market hall, cradling a mulled wine in The Royal Dick, and buying gig tickets as Christmas presents for their friends & family.

We normally charge £3 entry to our Christmas Market, but this year our online market is free to browse. If you are able to donate £3 to help offset some of the lost income we’re facing this December, we’d be so grateful.

Thank you.
