How'd you like to populate your Christmas feast with local, artisanal goods to make your relatives impressed and your in-laws floored? Carriageworks is bringing back its Christmas Market, where you can buy fresh seasonal produce just a couple of days before Christmas. Importantly, you can also buy gifts just days before the big day — because we know what you're like.

Taking over Carriageworks' regular Saturday morning meet on December 21, the market will go all Christmas with a cornucopia of the spoils of 120 of Australia's best producers, restaurants and designers — think homemade plum puddings, succulent hams, fresh cherries, smelly cheeses and more.

Expect the best from the weekly Carriageworks Farmers Market and more, including Christmas hams from Linga Longa Farm and Melanda Park, cherries from Kurrawong Organics, mince tarts from Flour and Stone, desserts from Andy Bowdy of Enmore's Saga, floral beauties from Jonima Flowers and much festive beer from Wildflower.

Plus, there'll be plenty more joining the party — more than 120 stallholders, to be exact — so expect to see Continental (and its much-loved tinned goods), Josh Niland's Fish Butchery, Pasta Emilia, Wholegreen Bakery (and its gluten-free goodies) and Pepe Saya there, too.

While entry to the market is free, you can pay $45 to attend a cherry pickling workshop led by Cornersmith's Alex Elliott-Howery — you can buy tickets to that over here.

Carriageworks Christmas Famers Market runs from 8am–2pm.
