Carmel Christkindlmarkt

The 2nd annual Carmel Christkindlmarkt officially opens on Saturday, Nov. 17. After a successful first year in 2017, the market is back and better than before with a variety of new vendors. I attended the Media Preview night to check out the new layout, food, drinks, vendors and ice skating.

“Christkindlmarkt” is the German term for a traditional Christmas market. They have been popular in cities such as Chicago, and now the tradition has made its way to Indiana.

There’s a variety of food and drink options this year, including mulled wine, punch, beer and ciders. They’ve also got a ton of German food and desserts. Additionally, there’s quite a few souvenir mugs available for purchase, and these will change each year so make sure to grab one!
