Hankering for a visit to Europe this year, but don't have the cash? Skip the plane trip and head along to The Rocks' French-inspired Christmas in July Markets, set to coincide with Circular Quay's Bastille Festival. The market will take over Argyle Street for four days and nights, from Thursday, July 11 until Sunday, July 14.

To make it feel as authentic as possible, 24 wooden chalets (twice as many as last year) will be shipped in from France. These little shacks will be set up around the area, with vendors serving up heart-warming snacks, mulled wine, freshly roasted chestnuts and Christmasy creations.

The markets will open at 10am each day, but it's when the sun goes down that things will really get magical. With the obvious absence of snow, the markets will get European with a blanket of fairy lights and a soundtrack of English and French Christmas carols.

There'll also be a pop-up ice skating rink for kids and a Christmas-themed pop-up bar for adults (only) complete with cocktails and karaoke.

The Christmas in July Markets will take place over four nights, from from 10am–11pm each night except Sunday, which will wrap up at 9pm. If you can't wait till then, then visit the regular Friday Foodie Markets that take place in the Rocks every week from 9am–3pm.
