The Imperial Hotel in Cork City, in celebration of both their recent Silver Eco-label Award from Green Hospitality and Sustainability Month are hosting a sustainable Christmas Market this coming weekend.
The market is taking place in partnership with Fifty Shades Greener and Cork Zero Waste.
On arrival you will be greeted with a hot chocolate before being taken upstairs to the ballroom where the fair is taking place.
The market is free to attend and is taking place between 12pm to 4pm and will contain over 15 stalls of local craftspeople.
There will be live music on the day as you stroll around and look at the local artisan makers, toy makers, and foodies to find unique gifts for yourself and others.

The team received the prestigious Silver Eco-label Award from Green Hospitality for introducing an Environmental Action Plan focusing on Energy, Waste & Water Management in a building which is over 200 years old.
Their dedicated Imperial Green Team introduced numerous sustainability initiatives over the past year, including a #BecauseWeCare Programme, a sustainable restaurant ‘Thyme at Seventy-Six on the Mall’, a sustainable cocktail bar ‘Sketch’, which uses 99% Irish products, a sustainable parklet outside the front door, and policies such as green purchasing and environmental waste management.
