'Sustainable' Christmas Market in Cork

To celebrate Sustainability Month and its recent Silver Eco-label Award from Green Hospitality, The Imperial Hotel in Cork City is hosting a Sustainable Christmas Market this Sunday 21st November, in partnership with Fifty Shades Greener and Cork Zero Waste.

Their motto inspired by Princess Grace (actress Grace Kelly), who stayed at the hotel 60 years ago, is ‘Don’t be like the rest of them Darling!’

On arrival guests can enjoy hot chocolate at the sustainable Parklet benches on the South Mall. Busy elves will then whisk them upstairs to the ballroom which will host the Sustainable Christmas Market from 12pm to 4pm.

The market will have 15 stalls of local craftspeople, artisan makers, toy makers, and foodies to find unique gifts for yourself and others, along with a range of treats. There will also be sustainable Christmas decoration making for kids on the day.

Exhibitors include Jiminy Eco Toys, Pinocchio’s, This is Chariot (sustainable clothing brand), Ivys Attic Jewellery, Cork Crafts, Eco Straws, Hannas Bee Wraps, Banana Melon Kitchen, Future Orchard, Bella Bleu Bridal, Earthway Refill, A Chick with 2 Stix, Escape Spa, Wildflower Creative, Cork Zero Waste, an Imperial Hotel Vegan food staff and coffee waste fertilizer stall,

The event is free to attend and exhibit at, as The Imperial is inviting donations to be made to Cork Simon.
