Christmas Market  France

A Christmas ride in Ardres

Ardres Christmas Market



The Ardres Christmas Market is held on the Sunday around about the 14th of December. We have just visited the market you follow the signs for the town centre.

The market is spread round the narrow streets in the town centre. Starting at the Tourist office most stalls are in the street but some are inside.We arrived at 11am the market was getting busy there was still plenty of parking spaces close to the market. There was a public address system playing christmas tunes which created a pleasant atmosphere. As well as the stalls most of the shops and cafes were open.

The first stall we came to was the mulled wine and hot chestnuts you can see in the photo. The hot wine was a euro for a large glass and on a cold day was very welcome.We also had a bag of chestnuts for 2 euros which kept your hands warm all round the market
