This Saturday, last minute shoppers can find plenty of festive cheer and last minute treats for the table and under the tree at the Creake Abbey Christmas Farmers’ Market.

Panic-stricken shoppers will find all they need and more in the grounds of Creake Abbey, where sensational array of traditional meats, sauces, pies and local delicacies will be waiting.

Those who have forgotten to order that ham, Christmas pud or need more mince pies need not worry, and there will be plenty of gifts including beautiful wreaths, planters, presents and stocking fillers for friends and family.

After the runaway success of the first Christmas Farmers’ Market on December 6, where turkeys, regional delicacies and wreaths flew off the shelves, the organisers are back and the market is bigger and better than ever.

Creake Abbey founder, Diana Scott, said: ‘We are thrilled to be opening our doors once again to welcome those from near and far to the unique Christmas shopping experience at Creake Abbey.

“With the smell of freshly roasted chestnuts in the air, everyone is fully in the festive spirit and we hope visitors will find all their last minute Christmas requirements too.

“Even Father Christmas is rumoured to be arriving at 11am!”

Visitors can enjoy the festive atmosphere at this unique market, browsing the wares of its fifty food stallholders as well as six stunning resident boutiques.

As always the Creake Abbey Café and Food Hall will be offering delicious, warming treats for all the hard-working shoppers.

All Farmers’ Market visitors are welcome to explore the beautiful Abbey ruins, making this a fun day out for all the family.

Entry is free and doors open 9.30 to 1pm, with the shops remaining open until 4pm. Go to for more details.
