FAB PO Christmas market is back!

The FAB-PO Marché de Noël is back!!!

FAB-PO (, an international non-profit making business network based in the Pyrénées-Orientales, is pleased to announce the return of its phenomenally successful Christmas Market.  This year’s market will take place on Sunday 29th November from 11am until 5pm  at the Salle Polyvalente in Saint Jean Pla de Corts – make sure you put the date in your diary now!

It promises to be a fun day out for all the family with Father Christmas making an appearance, pottery and facepainting for the kids, wine tasting and French language workshops, carol singing, a tombola with fantastic prizes, stalls selling local produce, cards and Christmassy delights and much much more.  Cyberia Café will be serving delicious sandwiches, soft drinks and snacks, and there will be a bar run by local winemakers, so come along and make a day of it.

It’s all for a good cause too as 25% of the profits from the day will be going to Cancer Support France ( , which provides English speaking support to cancer sufferers in France.

We hope to see you there!

It's Christmas Fair time!

Christmas is fast approaching and as you know, this year FAB PO are hoping to repeat the phenomenal success of last year’s Christmas Fair. We hope to be able to confirm the venue to you next week. The Fair will take place on either Sunday 22nd or Sunday 29th November in the afternoon.

We are currently compiling a list of stallholders and are offering precedence to members of FAB PO. The fair was well publicised last year on local radio and in the local press (including Anglo Info and L’Indépendent) and attracted over 2000 visitors, with a great mix of French and other nationalities.

If you are an artist who would like to exhibit your work, or you have a product or service that you would like to promote by taking a stand at this unique event, please contact Louise Sayers at to register your interest.

There will be a nominal fee of around 30 euros for each stall, the amount will be confirmed once a definitive venue is found.

It goes without saying that we hope to be able to count on your support to promote and attend the fair.

Best wishes
The FAB PO Christmas Fair Committee
