For the second year in a row, the Estonian Christmas fair joins up with the Scandinavian Christmas Market in London.
The market is supported by a range of Estonian food and drink companies, including the biggest and oldest confectionery company, Kalev; the food and wine producer, Põltsamaa Felix; spirits maker Liviko; and many more. Natural beauty and organic health food products will also be on sale. More traditional goods, such as woollen mittens from a sheep farm in southern Estonia, will add to the festive spirit. Mouse Tail Coffee, a company set up by a young London-based Estonian couple, will provide warm drinks.
Additionally, there will be well-stocked Scandinavian stalls with Scandinavian food, gifts and decorations at the market.
The Estonian stalls have been brought together by the Estonian Guild in London with the support of the Estonian Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
The proceeds will go towards supporting the Guild’s activities in London.
The Scandinavian Christmas Market (21-23 November) is located outdoors on Albion Street in Rotherhithe (SE16 7JB), London, adjacent to the Finnish and Norwegian churches. The nearest tube stations are Bermondsey, Canada Water and Rotherhithe. Entry to the fair is free.
