Local businesses exhibiting at the market includes The Wellness Lounge, The Wight Pencil, The Dotty Imaging Company, Wight Fairies and many more! This is the latest in a long line of fantastic markets run by I Love Wight, who are dedicated to promoting products from hard-working Island businesses. Their markets are extremely popular with local people and visitors to the Island alike, so you can be sure that their Christmas market will be bustling with activity and Christmas cheer!


The I Love Wight team are delighted to be back at The Garlic Farm in Newchurch. This well-known venue fits perfectly with their ‘island made’ ethos – with all the garlic goodies in the shop – plus they have plenty of free parking, a wonderful restaurant, the Allium cafe and there will be hot garlic snacks and seasonal drinks too. There will be music, face painting, festive workshops for children, vintage amusements, and Santa will be stopping by to visit too!


The Christmas markets will open 4-8pm on Friday 27th, and from 10-17:00 Saturday and Sunday – the Garlic Farm itself opens at 9am every day. Entry is free – you can see more details about the market on I Love Wight’s Facebook Page and in the poster below!
