The Abingdon-on-Thames Craft Market takes place at Abingdon Market Place. December is the market focusing on Christmas, one week after Christmas lights main switch on and celebration. Summer Craft Market has real style and variety.
Local craftmakers showcase and sell their high-quality, handmade crafts, including jewellery, woodturned items, textiles, leather goods, preserves, cakes, photography, and glass items.
There are also craft stalls at the quarterly Local Excellence markets but the specialist events have so much to look at and a special atmosphere especially for Christmas shopping with unique, well-designed local items for lovely gifts.

This is followed by a series of events to reflect the seasons. Examples include the NSPCC craft fair and events in St Nicolas, St Helen, Trinity churches and each community centre in town.
