York is going all out to dish up festive treats for Christmas 2022.
Many taste sensations are on offer during the St Nicholas Fair market – which runs from 17 November to 23 December on Parliament Street and St Sampson’s Square.
The biggest innovation is the Winter Hutte – a two-storey Swiss chalet feature an alpine bar and restaurant. The full story about that is here.
Another new addition to York’s Christmas Market 2022 is the Chocolate Circus. The brainchild of the York based family behind Herbie’s Treehouse, look out for their Instagram-worthy loaded hot chocolates.
From giant snowman marshmallows to York printed wafers, there’s a topping for everyone including a full vegan hot chocolate alternative menu.
Herbie’s Treehouse itself returns for its fifth year, with premium German mulled wine, Cornish mulled cider and Belgian hot chocolates.
This year, look out for the new Herbie’s Secret Orchard at the back of the Treehouse for a special menu of hot toddies created with award-winning York Gin.
Throughout the duration of the Christmas Market, resident singers and variety performers will play on the new Treetop Stage above the treehouse.
Local schools, choirs and community groups will be invited to perform, as well as York based artists and international singers.
Shambles Market Food Court vendors Krep and Shambles Kitchen will be returning to the Christmas market this year.
And Meow and Bao Little Bubble Box will be serving up a combination of infused Asian cuisine.
Shambles Ski Bar is also back, with an Après Ski themed pop-up bar stocked with festive favourites.
A new addition to this year’s market is York Cocoa Works, who will be on hand to share their chocolate making process from cocoa beans to chocolate bar, truffles, cakes and more.
And of course neighbouring Shambles Market is some of York’s best independent traders, selling everything from seasonal wreaths to locally grown produce.
