Christmas Markets

The last regular Roath Market of the year is on Saturday 19th December and most traders are already taking Christmas orders. They’re also running an extra market on the 22nd December from 2pm – 6pm at the Mack so you can stock up in time for Christmas dinner! The market will restart in 2016 on Saturday 9th January. 
Roath Craft Market runs inside the Mack on a Saturday morning with lots of Christmas decorations, cards and gifts – they’re also running until 19th December.

Roath gifts

I loves the ‘Diff has lots of Roath-related goodies – the online store is temporarily closed but there are lots of stockists across the city.

There are lots of great Christmas gifts among the many independent shops and galleries in Roath. Check out:
