Mill Road Winter Fair
Mill Road Winter Fair is a celebration of the community along with one of the most diverse and vibrant roads in Cambridge.
Held on the first Saturday of December, the Fair brings together local businesses and organisations, shops and stallholders, musicians, artists and dancers in one day of festival joy.
Cambridge is a market city, and stalls have been trading at the historic market square in the city centre since the middle ages. From Monday to Saturday, 10 am to 4 pm, stalls at the general market sell a wide range of goods including books, music, films, clothes, jewellery, fresh food, second-hand bikes, plants, mobile phones and accessories, and much more.
The market square also hosts a flourishing local food, arts and crafts market on Sundays (10 am to 4 pm), selling organic produce from local farmers and work from some of the region’s most talented artists, craftsmen, potters, sculptors and photographers.
All Saints Market
This delightful market opposite Trinity College was elected the Best Small Art & Craft Market in 2018. All Saints Market is held every Saturday opposite Trinity Colleges and is featuring artists and craftists selling their leather-work, jewellery, wood-crafts, pens, stamps, essential oils, pottery, cards and prints, sculpture, fabric art and stained glass.

Find unique gifts at independent shops
We can be proud of the vast number of independent shops in Cambridge. Unfortunately, these lovely shops are often hard to find as they’re tucked away in alleyways and a bit further away from Kings Parade, close to Mill Road. Here are our favourite indie shops in Cambridge.
Enjoy the festive season and don’t forget to check out our What’s on Agenda, the Cambridge portal for what’s happening in Cambridge.
