One of Liverpool's most iconic markets is launching a dedicating Christmas market for the first time in its 180-year history.

Great Homer Street Market, known by locals as Greatie, has been around for nearly two centuries, with people across Liverpool visiting its stalls every Saturday.

Now, vendors at the Everton venue are gearing up to welcome customers to a special Christmas market every Sunday.

Running from November 19 until December 17, it will operate from 10.00am to 4.00pm each week with a range of affordable festive goodies and food up for grabs, complementing the Christmas markets at St George's Hall.

Liverpool City Council’s Cabinet Member for Health, Wellbeing and Culture, Councillor Harry Doyle, said: “Greatie is one of our flagship markets and is hugely popular every Saturday – I personally am a huge fan and love finding hidden gems in there.

“Following conversations with traders and customers, we were keen to introduce activities which not only enhance the current offer but also attract a whole new audience who can experience everything this wonderful site has to offer.

“This is a fantastic addition to our city-wide Christmas programme which is getting bigger and better each year.”
