German Christmas Market

If you live in Vancouver and haven’t had the chance to visit the German Christmas Market, you have until December 24th to check it out! The Market has been a huge success – hopefully the start of another great Christmas tradition in this city.

Admission is only $2 from 11:00am-2:00pm, so go for lunch and try the roast pork, bratwurst, or raclette sandwich, along with a mug of mulled wine or hot cider, and a stuffed baked apple or strudel for dessert.

My first evening at the Market and I couldn’t believe my luck – roast pig on a spit!

Prepping my raclette sandwich.

Delicious melted raclette served on focaccia bread with ham and baby gherkins on the side.

You can also do some last-minute Christmas shopping while you’re at it: delicious stollen from the Artisan Bake Shoppe, beautiful alpaca scarves, ornaments, pottery, toys, embroidery – there’s something for everyone. Ein gesegnetes Weihnachtsfest!
