Fayetteville's personality really shines through during the holiday season, especially when our fun and funky city springs to life with holiday shopping markets! There's nothing better than finding the perfect Christmas gift at a quirky craft fair, a small handmade market, or a local artisan gift pop-up, and there's nowhere better to do it than here.

Fayetteville is a city full of artists, makers, offbeat shops, and unique food (it's kind of what we do), so if you want to increase your odds of finding just the right thing, there's no better place in Northwest Arkansas to hit the holiday markets this year. Besides the shopping itself, you can make the trip to a holiday market into a full day experience! Sip spiked hot chocolate as you wander the Square, take in the breathtaking Lights of the Ozarks, and eat at one of our award-winning restaurants - just consider it a gift to yourself.
