These are not ‘overhyped’ markets instead a bit overpriced is what you can call them. But do not hesitate to use your bargaining skills. Nonetheless, the Christmas food is also on the roll from early in the month. You can try Turkey Wellington, Cranberry sauce, Brussels sprouts, Roast potatoes, Roasted Chicken, Pig in a Blanket, Braised Red Cabbage and Roast carrots. 

If you are more fond of the desert, there is lots of chocolate, Christmas cake, mince pies, trifles and yuletide pudding too. Moreover, in Kingston, a Christmas shopping trail has been set up by independent businesses. The best thing about this market is that you can find authentic British products.
