1. East Coast Commune Holiday Market – For the Artisans
Tucked away in the serenity of the East Coast neighbourhood, this little food and lifestyle market will be perfect for those who’re living around the area, or simply looking for an easy afternoon.
On the block during this weekend, we’ll have homegrown brands selling ceramic ware, slow and ethical apparel, as well as treats. Yes – artisan cheese and cakes!
For the slow living minimalists, you might want to check this out.
Date: 17 to 18 December, 9am to 5pm
Location: 1000 East Coast Parkway, #01-03
2. Christmas Market at The Cheese Deli (…Plus Wine)
A stone’s throw away from Siglap Centre, this could be your second pit stop after checking out East Coast Commune’s Christmas Market. Despite having only 5 vendors on board, you can be sure their treats are all about quality.
Think Japanese oysters, sweet bakes, cheese and crackers! Don’t forget to pick up a couple of homeware and jewellery while you’re there too.
Plus… wine for the adults? It’s Christmas at a Cheese Deli after all!
Date: 17 to 18 December, 11am to 6pm
Location: 55 Upper East Coast Road
3. Indie Christmas Market @ Tell Your Children
Vintage thrifting, bean juice and food, bakes, vinyls, and ceramic ware. While some in-house brands might be familiar names, you can also be pleasantly surprised by some new-sprung brands.
For the hippie parents among us, this might be a good place to start introducing your kids to the local indie culture. Check out their Christmas poster here!
Date: 16 to 18 December, timings vary between 1 to 10pm
Location: 188-8 Tanjong Katong Road
4. Public Garden: Consumer Trade Show for Asian Creatives
A personal favourite, this is a huge crafts market you would not want to miss. Happening only twice a year, Public Garden is a consumer trade show which brings artists from around the region flocking over to Singapore. Think Thai artists, Indonesian linen fashion brands, and more!
From apparel and jewellery to homeware as well as paper products, you can probably expect to spend about 2 hours here at a minimum. Whether it’s playful, minimalistic or quirky you’re looking for, there’s something for everyone here.
Date: 24 to 25 December
Location: Suntec Convention Hall 405
5. Christmas at Capitol and CHIJMES: Fake Snow and Live Carols
If you’re quickly disenchanted by the lights down Orchard strip, Christmas at Capitol and CHIJMES may be an alternative you’d consider. Though you may not avoid the crowd, it will be worth the jostle – with live performances, light projection show, fake snow, and of course – Christmas market!
With all the sights and sounds, it will surely be a White tropical Christmas, unforgettable for your little ones.
Head over to their website for more information on event details.
Date: 18 to 26 December, 12pm to 10.30pm
Location: Capitol Singapore & CHIJMES
6. Christmas in Chinatown: For a Good Cause (& Back Massages!)
Come celebrate this Christmas with a good cause as Chinatown partners with the Association of Visually Handicapped and Red Cross to ring in the merry-making.
While Christmas in Chinatown may seem like an uncanny pairing, these festivities do not disappoint. Apart from the usual retail stalls and live busking, this particular market will surprise you with massages. There will also be workshops that you can get your hands busy with.
Date: 17 to 18 December, 11am to 8pm
Location: Sago and Pagoda Street, Chinatown
7. Cluny Court Christmas Fair & Market
Tucked amidst the charming neighbourhood lined with boutiques and cafes, Cluny Court is bringing a family-friendly Christmas mart for those around the area.

The name says it all – Etsy. The place for crafters and designers, head over to this Whimsical Market if you cannot get enough of maker’s marts.
Snag some matching beaded accessories with your kid or cute stickers while shopping together. Even cuter if you decide to join in one of the craft workshops together – pick from the likes of mini Piña ornament making, bear painting, flower bookmark making, and more!
Date: 9 to 18 December, 10am to 10pm
Location: Suntec Convention Hall H401 to H406
