It's fair to say 2020 has been a challenging year for everyone.
And as we face another lockdown during what should be one of the busiest times of years for shoppers and traders alike, KCOM is seeking to inject some festive cheer into the run-up to Christmas.
That's why we've created this, KCOM's Christmas Market – a free, one-stop shop for everything you'll need this Yuletide. From award-winning breweries to brilliant local delis - with everything from candlestick makers to bespoke fashion and furniture retailers in between – you'll find them all here under one virtual roof.
We created the market because we believe in buying local, supporting local businesses and backing our region. But if you can't visit your favourite independent shop in person this year then the next best way to support them is to find them here online. This is the place to come to find the best supplies and gifts for you and your family from dozens of local independent businesses.
So put a festive spring in your step, deck the halls with boughs of holly and prepare to take a wander around our virtual market. We're sure you'll find something for everyone here, listed under our wide range of categories and traders.
Now let's get shopping! Happy Christmas everyone and let's make 2020 a year to remember after all.
