Christmas Market History
Village Green Christmas Market is based on the Christmas markets that originated in Europe and date back to the Late Middle Ages. These open-air holiday markets or, as they called them in Germany and Austria, “Weihnachtsmarkt,” were generally held in or near to the town square. Vendors sold festive food, drink, and goods and the town celebrated with traditional song and dance. These types of markets are now held all over the world to celebrate the Christmas season!
Village Green Christmas Market has many unique offerings including traditional German food and drink like brats, fresh baked goods, and Glühwein, our traditional German hot spiced wine—guaranteed to keep you cozy while wandering through Winter Wonderland!
