This Christmas, give the gift of your vote to Calderdale markets. The National Association off British Markets Authorities (NABMA) is looking for Britain’s Favourite Market, and is asking people across the UK to cast their vote before the end of December 2014.

If it’s gift ideas you’re after then look no further. Calderdale markets are bursting with handmade jewellery, local arts and crafts and even have traders ready to show you how to make your own gifts, such as knitted jumpers and cards.

On Saturdays throughout December Halifax is hosting food, produce and craft markets along with Hebden Bridge every Sunday. In Sowerby Bridge there’s a Totally Locally Christmas market on Sunday, December 7, and an Artsbridge market on Sunday December 14. Plus Ripponden is hosting a community market, also on Sunday December 14. For all your last minute items Halifax Borough Market and Todmorden Market Hall are open on Sunday December 21.

To help Calderdale markets achieve this title, simply go to and enter the name of the local market you love the most.

To help you decide, why not pay a visit to your local market? If you haven’t been in a while, this is the perfect time of year to get reacquainted. There’s lots going on across all markets in Calderdale, and you’ll find everything you need for a fabulous festive season.

Whatever you like to eat at Christmas you’ll find it all at your local market
