It’s like Betelgeuse; say it three times and it will appear. With the kind permission of the Bailiff (he’s so kind about nice events taking place), Genuine Jersey are able to organise three Simply Christmas markets in the Royal Square this year; three four-day weekends that support local and kick off the festive season. Let throngs of Christmas cheer cheer out. Three times. Then Christmas. Boom.
The Genuine Jersey Simply Christmas markets will bring you a labyrinth of stalls oozing with festive magic, beautiful gifts and tasty treats sold by more than 60 local artisans and producers. Genuine Jersey Chief Executive John Garton said: “Being able to bring the Genuine Jersey Simply Christmas Markets back to the Royal Square last year was just incredible, so good that this year we’re going to be running over not just two, but three four-day weekends. We really hope that this is the start of a new tradition for the festive calendar. As with previous years there will be hot food, drinks, and a programme of live music and entertainment throughout the three weekends, making the markets the perfect place to buy unique gifts directly from the artisans who have created and produced them, while soaking up the atmosphere and embracing the festive cheer.
“Being able to extend over three weekends wouldn’t be possible for us without input from local businesses Signtech CI, Fetch.je and TEAM Asset Management, we simply wouldn’t be able to provide our Members with this fabulous platform to sell their goods if it wasn’t for them. A special thanks must also go to the Bailiff’s office and also the Soup Kitchen organisers who have worked together to allow us to take on the third weekend.”
