Chartres Christmas Market and Skating rink

Chartres Christmas Market (Eure-et-Loire, Centre Val de Loire) runs from 8 – 24 December 2018 with the Village de Noël in the place des Halles
The town of Chartres is ablaze with festive lights for its fantastic Christmas market. The adults enjoy the stalls with local artisans displaying their goods as well as plenty of tasty treats of chocolate, chestnuts and cinnamon to tempt the taste buds.

The younger visitors can enjoy the manger scene, a welcome parade for Santa Claus and in previous years  there has been an ice skating rink in the place des Epars.

For gourmets you can try “grandes spécialités chartraines“, such as Mentchikoffs (fine chocolate wrapped in Swiss meringue), sweet soft macaroons or  le Cochelin, a delicious festive patisserie made from flaky pastry in the shape of a man which you dunk in choclate or jam!
