German Christmas Market in Denver

Image

There is a Small German market off the 16th street mall in Skyline park, known as Denver ChristKindle Market.

The market last between November 21st – December 25th.

The vendors are in little wooden houses, that were built days before the market event.

My first stop at the market was the hand-blown glass vendor.  I watched him make a glass icicle decoration in a few minutes, right before my eyes. I bought a green glass pickle decoration.

Why on earth did I buy a green glass pickle. Well because it’s linked to a German tradition.  You hide a pickle deep inside the tree and first child to find it, gets to open a extra gift.

My next stop was the vendor with the black forest wooden coo coo clocks. Most of the clocks are mechanical and the decorative parts are all hand carved and hand painted.

Then I made my way to the polish porcelain. The smaller simpler pieces are $10.00 ranging all the way up to a Santa Clause cookie jar, selling for $100.00. My favorite was the had painted porcelain cups.

There is great food there as well, like German chocolate, danish pastries, bratwurst and roasted almonds.
