The BQA Christmas Market
This year, we’re kicking off the festive season with what we do best! Join us on 4th December between 6-9pm in welcoming a host of Dumfries and Galloway’s finest local suppliers and producers to our Christmas Market. Come and indulge your sweet tooth with a festive treat or lay your mitts on the perfect present from our array of unique, handmade gifts.
Our guest suppliers will be showcasing a sumptuous assortment of local produce from artisan cheeses to locally brewed ciders and ales. Many of our suppliers will be bringing along their own, extra special festive hampers, and there will be a fantastic selection of gifts to choose from.
The market promises to be a fun evening for all the family, full of festive cheer and a chance to pick up some wonderful gifts – all this and we’ll be supporting our local community, too!
