Clitheroe Market traders' representative Stuart Gradwell said: "We invite people to get in the Christmas spirit and join us for what promises to be a great day, with a feast of festive fun, top seasonal produce and fabulous gifts all on offer."
Clitheroe Market is also open for an extra day over the Christmas period: Monday 23 December, and as normal on Saturday 21 December and Tuesday 24 December.
The market will be closed on Thursday 26 December, and there will be no collectors markets on Friday 20 December and Friday 27 December. Normal business at the market will resume from Saturday 28 December.
Clitheroe has hosted a regular market since the Norman Conquest in the 12th Century.
Over 80 stalls now sell fruit and vegetables, bread and cakes, fish and meat, clothing and lingerie, pottery and craft items, curtains and fabrics, rugs and household textiles, flowers and electrical goods.
It is also home to a number of specialist food traders, including Ferguson's Deli, which is featured on the Ribble Valley Food Trail, and legendary fruit and veg stall Burney's.
