New pop up markets for Christmas launched in Exeter Pop-up markets

Five days of pop-up markets will be held in Exeter in the lead up to Christmas.

InExeter’s Pop Up Emporium will be held in various locations around the city starting with the Guildhall Shopping Centre on Carnival weekend - Saturday 26 and Sunday 27 November.

Nestled in the sheltered piazza of the Guildhall Shopping Centre, visitors will discover an eclectic mix of small businesses and local traders in the first Pop Up Emporium.

It takes place in the square outside WH Smith between 10am and 4pm and features a curated presentation of artisan goods and alternative gifts from across the South West.

Other locations include the Temple of the Freemasons Hall in Gandy Street on Saturday 10 December and a two-day finale in Bedford Square, Princesshay, on the weekend before Christmas, Saturday 17 and Sunday 18 December.

For one day only, the Freemason's Hall will play host to the most atmospheric of Christmas market events.

Visitors will be able to marvel at the wonderful creations of the Pop-Up Emporium while soaking up the mysteries of the Freemasons and their Temple, which is not usually open to the public.

The market has an entry fee of £2.50 and will include a tour of the building before visitors are welcomed into the dining room where there will be a curated mix of stalls offering gifts perfect for Christmas.

Markets Manager Lottie Stanley said:  “I am hugely excited to deliver the Pop-Up Emporium Christmas Markets including the one-off market at the Freemasons Hall.

“Join us for an incredible shopping experience and enlightening explorations into this obscure and enigmatic world.”

Anyone who wishes to experience the Pop-Up Emporium can book via the Eventbrite link: Please note that there are several flights of stairs in this historic venue.

The final Pop-Up Emporium will be the weekend before Christmas hosted by Princesshay in Bedford Street.

This will be a fantastic opportunity to pick up last minute unique gifts before the big day. This extravaganza of local stall holders will be located between H&M and Russel & Bromley.

Expect tempting treats and delectable bakes, handmade favors and scented goodies and frippery galore.
