London's longest-running ethical Christmas market is back on Oxford Street this week!

published on 6 Dec 2019

Fair Christmas Fayre is free to enter and will take place on Saturday 7 December at The Salvation Army, Regent Hall, 275 Oxford Street W1C 2DJ– just a few metres west of Oxford Circus. The Fayre is open from 1​1 am to 6 pm and provides an ethical alternative to high street shopping in the run-up to Christmas.   The event gives shoppers a chance to create a Christmas for themselves that is fair for the world’s poorest people and for the planet.

Fair Christmas Fayre, now in its 12th year, will include 25 ​unique stalls selling eco-friendly, Fairtrade, upcycled, recycled and charity gifts and fashion. 

​​Organiser Captain Ben Cotterill from The Salvation Army International Development UK said: 

“Fair Christmas Fayre offers shoppers the opportunity to buy high-quality Christmas gifts, whilst also making a difference to the lives of others. 

“Shoppers can buy at Fair Christmas Fayre in the knowledge that they are buying from those who have thought carefully about what they sell — how it is made, the materials used, who makes it, and where the money goes.

“Many of the sellers are social enterprises, or their profits go to charitable organisations. With so many stalls there are gifts for all the family so that everyone will enjoy their time at the Fayre. There is also an on-site cafe for a well-deserved rest after shopping!”

Third time Fair Christmas Fayre exhibitor Barbara Wilson from said: 

“It is always a great pleasure to take part in such a positive, ethical event that practically supports many talented producers worldwide. Fair Christmas Fayre has lots of wonderful, handmade gifts which are beautifully made with great skill and care and at reasonable prices too.”
