Christmas markets in Normandy

Normandy Christmas Markets

I’ve compiled a list of forthcoming Normandy Christmas markets for 2023. The majority of them are in La Manche region close to me but you’ll find links to other sources at the end of the article. Although the information is correct at the time of writing the article, please check the details with the venue or organiser. Events tend to be advertised on Facebook so that’s usually a good place to find additional information. Alternatively, a local tourist office or town hall may also have additional details.

Many events are held in a salle des fétes which is a village hall or in churches. There are some events at abbeys and castles for something a little bit different. Most events offer free entry. Not all events have stalls selling food and drink to consume on the day but if they do it’s usually mentioned on the advert.

These events are a great opportunity to buy Christmas presents and meet local producers. There is a wide range of products to buy including food, drink, ceramics, art, candles, soaps, jewellery and Christmas cards.
