Christmas in Chesterfield


Chesterfield Market at Christmas

For the tastiest local produce for your Christmas meal, not to mention Christmas gift ideas for family and friends – Chesterfield Market and Market Hall has all you need.

Ibbotsons fruit and veg stall has been standing on Chesterfield market since 1945 and is run by the third generation of the Ibbotson family. They recently merged with Ayres fruit and veg stall and stand on the market six days per week offering top quality fruit, vegetables and salad produce.

Owner Nick Ibbotson says: “We now have much more room to display the produce – meaning we are now able to stock more produce and offer more variety for our customers.  Their produce is, where possible, sourced locally to reduce the mileage involved and the impact on the environment.

Nick says: “We source as much as we can locally – everything is much fresher than you would get in a supermarket. “The big sellers at Christmas are carrots, sprouts and parsnips – people tend to buy them for Christmas lunch whether they like them or not.”

The ones we have here will have been growing in the ground yesterday and are here on the stall today ready for you to cook tomorrow.”

Chesterfield Market Hall hosts a variety of stalls to offer you the ingredients for your perfect Christmas including:

  • W Hodkin and RB Elliott and son Butchers offering a variety of meat and poultry;
  • Lamb’s cupcakes offering Christmas cakes, biscuits and traybakes and the Fruit and Nut Centre selling dried fruits for your cakes and puddings and nuts for after your Christmas meal.
  • The outside of the Market Hall also has Davidson’s Cheese Factor for stocking your Christmas cheeseboard;
