The market will feature numerous local exhibitors offering a wide range of products to cater to various tastes and preferences, including wines, gourmet food, crafts, ceramics, paintings, fashion, jewellery, beauty products, sweets, regional products, flowers, toys, and more.

Since its inception, the Vale do Lobo Christmas Market has been a highly anticipated event for both the resort’s resident community and visitors. It offers an opportunity for fundraising for the Wolf Valley Charity Fund, one of the most prominent charity organisations in the region, founded in 1999, with nearly 25 years of dedicated service. Funds raised from this event go on to support local social causes in need.
