Hazel Roberts picks out the best local food events to enjoy in Milton Keynes and surrounding areas over the festive season…
With the street food vendors switching to their festive menus and small producers selling unique handmade gifts, December is the perfect time to wrap up warm and head out for some Christmas shopping.
If you love your street food, then make sure you don’t miss out on Eat Street on 7th December at York House. They will be back at York House again on 15th December too with more street food and a Christmas Market.
Elsewhere, there will be street food and gift buying opportunities on 16th December at the Christmas Fair at Castlemead Court in Newport Pagnell.
And the Stony Stratford Christmas Lights Switch-On on 1st December offers plenty of shopping opportunities from the street market – all the usual shops, restaurants and pubs will be open along the High Street too.
On 2nd December, head over to Woburn Abbey to stroll the cobbled streets of the Antiques Centre, whilst browsing the 50 stalls at the MacIntyre Christmas Fayre.
And on 8th December, Wharf Distillery will be holding their Christmas Fiesta, offering gift shopping with local producers, amazing street food and local beers, cider, wine and spirits.
All the usual farmers’ markets will be on again during December but Olney’s will be part of Dickens of a Christmas and Stony Stratford’s usual Friday market is moving to Christmas Eve for a special festive edition to round off your Christmas shopping.
