Head to this merry market for festive trinkets and gourmet treats

This is the winter market for anyone who loves a good tinsel theme. Dress up in your most unflattering Christmas jumpers and head to the Rocks for mulled wine, fairy lights and early Christmas gifts at the Christmas in July Markets.

As part of the Bastille Festival, Sydney is shipping in 12 traditional French chalets from the mother country, giving the Rocks a Parisian makeover and transporting market-goers to the mountains for the holiday season. These wooden structures will house stalls dishing out winter treats, Christmas decorations and gifts.

You can visit this wintery escape from July 12-15, but be sure to make one trip an evening affair and catch the moment when the fairy lights get their twinkle on at 5pm. When you’ve had enough carolling and other festive celebrations, head to Le Cinema to watch French films on the MCA lawn under the stars.
