A two-day Christmas market, with 150 stalls and activities for children, will be held this weekend at Seymour Shaw Park, Miranda.

This is the third year Cambridge Markets has held a Christmas market in Sutherland Shire, with previous successes at Kurnell in 2018 and Don Lucas Reserve, Wanda last year.

An Easter market was also held at Wanda in 2019, but had to be cancelled this year due to COVID-19.

The market will be held on Saturday and Sunday, November 21-22, from 10am to 4pm.

Cambridge Markets director Madelienne Anderson said the move to Seymour Shaw Park was to offer greater Covid protection.

"This will allow for a large number of people to come and shop in complete safety," she said.

"There will be 150 stalls, kids' rides, cool tunes, a beachside bar, delicious international food and an appearance by Santa."

It will offer a wide range of goods across gifting, homewares, food, fashion, art, craft, photography, textiles, jewellery, swimwear, clothes and toys for children, hats, treats and toys for pets, leatherwork and paper products.

"After what has been a really hard year for so many people, including our stallholders who have lost so many opportunities to sell their goods at markets due to closures across Sydney, we are seriously delighted to bring this market back to the community," said Cambridge Markets curator Rebecca Fox.

"A lot of people are wondering how they can do their Christmas shopping this year in a safe and meaningful way that's not just pumping money into indoor shopping centres.

"The Christmas market offers a great chance to get out and support the local small business owners who sell their incredible range of products at these markets.

"Come out, talk to your local stallholder, find out about the goods that you are buying, where the products came from and how they were made, connect with the community, eat some excellent food and have a great experience"
