The merriest time of the year is here, and getting festive is on everyone's agenda — and every market's around town, too. But only one will have Francophiles delighting: Le Festival's French Christmas Market, which returns for its second year after its 2021 debut.

Running across Saturday, November 19–Sunday, November 20, this two-day affair will get you eating, drinking, shopping and feeling Gallic at West End's West Village. Think of it as Brisbane's usual midyear Le Festival but smaller — and filled with season's greetings.

Red, white and blue lights will set the jolly tone, market stalls will sell all manner of French-inspired wares, and there'll be a French bar, too, because all that browsing and buying is thirsty work.

Basically, it's the next best thing to heading to France for Christmas (all without the cost of an airfare).
