Amiens Christmas Market: over 130 exponents and lots of new things
In this 2 km long promenade, visitors have lots of shopping options to choose from: artisanal art, rubber jewelry, Cachemire scarves, or small leather goods.

Tastebuds will also be delighted with all of the typical Christmas sweets and regional products such as beer and picard Christmas cookies, mulled wine, or gingerbread.

The Merchants Federation and the City Hall of Amiens have organized many activities and new additions this year to make the market even more magical.

For example, automated machines designed by the artist from Normandie Marie-B, tell Christmas stories in a village with six cottages while Picard puppet shows continue to enchant children.

“Visiting our market also means discovering Amiens that is a beautiful city with a lot to offer - explains Isabelle Dheilly, General Delegate of the Merchants’ Federation - For this 19th edition, a new Art Deco trail has been set up in the city center for tourists who will also be able to visit the Notre-Dame of Amiens cathedral, a masterpiece of gothic architecture listed as a UNESCO World Heritage site, or Jules Verne’s home where the famous writer from "Around the World in 80 Days" lived from 1882 to 1900, without forgetting the Picardie Museum that hosts the most beautiful archeological collection of the north of Paris.”
