This year has not only seen the return of Wembley market but also its first ever continental-style Christmas market.
From rows of wooden chalets trading treasures of festive goods, a Wembley ice rink and a visit from the Coca-Cola truck.
When the former Wembley market closed a heartfelt comment was left about the old days of Wembley market at Christmas time:
“I know alot of people who used to go to Wembley market at Christmas to buy wrapping paper etc. It is the end of an era for me and alot of my friends.”
Let’s see if the addition of a daily Wembley Christmas market is enough to lure back the former Wembley market friends who use to shop here for gifts and wrapping paper?

Not off to a good start, spot the typo in the signage, oops:
The rear of the Coca-Cola truck greeted shoppers yesterday as it ended its Christmas tour and parked up on Boulevard Way beside the Wembley Christmas Market.
Shoppers took to their camera phones for a Coca-Cola truck photo opp.
Number plate reads ‘SANTA1’.
Coca-Cola’s little helpers were offering free cans of coke to shoppers in need of a sugar-rush.
Beyond the cola truck a row of warm looking wooden chalet stalls are buzzing.
German sausage with mulled wine will set you back about £10.
Bailey’s hot chocolate was popular, will cost you £4.00.
Hats and scarves galore.
Crepes in demand, was one of few stores with a queue forming.
Ideal gifts soaking up passing trade.
At the end of the Christmas market is the Ice Rink, very popular with families and couples.
Don’t laugh! Everyone’s a beginner at some point and most of us fall flat on our face first too.
Wembley Christmas market is something new and interesting to do in Wembley and brings a festive continental touch to a new audience, open daily from 12pm – 8pm until the 28th of December.
