Frankenmuth Farmers Market's Christkindlmarkt returns downtown
Frankenmuth is known far and wide for Christmas, and the Frankenmuth Farmers Market does not disappoint with the return of the Frankenmuth ChristKindlMarkt this year during Thanksgiving weekend, Friday, November 29 thru Sunday, December 1. The tagline for the event reads, 𠇊 Handmade Christmas,” which is representative of the homemade and handcrafted vendors that set up at this event every year. This artisan market will have two shopping locations, more than 35 vendors, a festive bar serving glühwein, and so much more.
The "big" tent will be located behind the Frankenmuth Historical Museum. The second tent will be located between Rau's Country Store and Rapunzel's Boutique. Both tents are heated and full of handcrafted goods and quality vendors.
New for 2019 is the addition of the Christmas Tree Raffle within Fischer Hall. The Hall will be home to several vendors during the ChristKindlMarkt as well as a bar serving traditional German glühwein and other drinks. Inside, guests will find beautiful live and artificial trees decorated and presented on-stage... and you might take one home with you! Guests can purchase tickets ($5 for 3) and place their slip in the bucket for the tree they want. Winners will be drawn on Sunday, December 1st; you do not need to be present to win.
The Frankenmuth ChristKindlMarkt is known for having a collection of handmade gifts, treats and more on display... and this year is no different! Here’s just a short list of the types of items that will be available between the two market locations: handmade candles, home decor, artwork and photography, glass work, soap and body care, wooden signs, greenery, baked goods and desserts, microgreens, tea, maple syrup, quilts and bedding, custom cut ornaments, fragrances, food mixes, repurposed and vintage decor, dog treats and toys, fancy butter, coffee, and so much more. Over 35 vendors are currently scheduled to be present between the two market locations, and that number is expected to reach 50 by the ChristKindlMarkt’s opening day.
The ChristKindlMarkt will be open three days over Thanksgiving Weekend. Friday, November 29 from 11am-9pm; Saturday, November 30 from 11am-7pm; and Sunday, December 1 from 11am-4pm.
This beautiful pop-up street market will be packed with troves of treasure and treats for kicking off your holiday season. It's the perfect place to grab a gift for the whole family – or just yourself. Bring your friends and family and shop the Frankenmuth ChristKindlMarkt, presented by the Frankenmuth Farmers Market.
