Christkindl on Main
We may not be able to have a Christkindlmarkt this year but that won't stop us from having gemütlichkeit!
Hudson-Landsberg Sister City is pleased to announce our first Christkindl on Main, a safe event for the family during these uncertain times.
December 12 & 13
Saturday from 12-4
Sunday from 12-4
Glühwein and Cider have been canceled. Please find recipes on our Facebook Page
Thank you for all the support this year. We tried to bring the city and its citizens another magical event but the current health crisis makes it impossible for us to responsibly host an event.
Please consider giving your patronage to our vendors - contact information below. With so many events canceled this year, they would appreciate your help.
The Hudson Christkindlmarkt will be back next year! May you find Gemütlichkeit until then.
Organized by Hudson Montessori
While we will not be able to have any vendors at our event this year, we encourage you to find them online and support these local artists. Consider supporting a local artist for your gift and gastro needs this holiday season. See links below!
Meet our Vendors!
Original Strudel Factory
Our name says it all (well, most of it)! We have fresh-baked apple, cherry, cheese, and pumpkin strudel! If that is not enough for you, we also offer savories like broccoli-cheese, beef Wellington, and German sausage. Wash it down with some of our gourmet coffees, teas, mochas, and more!
Ricky & Charlie's Country Kitchen
Sharing recipes I have from my Oma! Pfeffernüsse has a distinct flavor of white pepper and anise. The Lebkuchen bars have that gingerbread taste...only better. The pumpernickel and rye breads always remind my mom of visiting the Chrsitkindlmarkt when she was in Germany. We will also have Mason Jar Cookie Mix - the perfect way to get even the youngest cook involved in creating memories!
Two Branches: Totally Nuts
It wouldn't be a German Holiday market without the scent of roasted nuts wafting through the air! Stop by for a bag to eat while you stroll and come back for a supply to have at home or give as gifts! We have cinnamon roasted almonds, cashews, and pecans. Gift boxes of cinnamon roasted nuts, chocolate almonds, salted cashews, and butter toffee peanuts available!
Great Lakes Bakery
The Christstollen is a holiday bread that legend says was made to represent the Christchild in swaddling. This yeasted cake is filled with candied orange, lemon, and citron peels as well as chopped almonds and marzipan for that extra touch! (Nut-free versions are available). Lebkuchen and other German holiday treats will also be available.
Metal Meets Clay
I hand sculpt all these unique figures using paper clay and antique cans (spice, talc, automotive, mirror boxes, etc). Santas get an Old European look using hand-pulled wool or alpaca, etc. for hair, beards. Also for the holidays, are plenty of elves along with happy snowmen..(Mr. and Mrs.) looking for homes.
We have handmade teddy bears, sachets, and tooth fairy bags made from previously loved quilts. You can also bring home birdhouses and bird feeders made in Ohio from 100% reclaimed barn wood and/or live edge lumber salvaged from Ohio specialty mills. For the young Buckeyes get the "O is for Ohio" picture book.
Heart of the Tree - Toymaker
Revisit your childhood and share the fun with these handmade wooden toys. The toymaker has toys for every budget and every child! The toys are made from native Ohio trees including oak, walnut, ash, poplar, beech, maple, and cherry. The wood is sustainably harvested and turned into beautiful heirloom-quality pieces.
Krampus of Cleveland
Have you been good this year?... Let's hope so! Krampus is a tradition from southern Germany and Austria who accompanies Saint Nicholas. While Saint Nicholas rewards good children, Krampus is charged with punishing the bad!
Get your picture taken and check out the cool Krampus merch!
This carving technique is a rare ancient Eastern European Folk Art. Each design is hand-carved from a single piece of fallen white cedar The beauty in the design is that they are carved from one piece of wood. No glue or staples are ever used. Each piece has its own personality creating dove, hummingbird, or love birds.
Juniper Creative Co
Looking for a specialized gift for that special someone? I offer custom-designed, hand-painted personalized Hudson family ornaments. You can also find personalized wooden ornaments for Hudson and neighboring cities!
The taste of the holiday! Chocolate Moonshine Co. produces and develops luxury chocolate and fudge in Pittsburgh, PA. All of our products are world-class luxury chocolate and award-winning with flavors like Salted Caramel Bourbon, Bananas Foster w/rum, Barrel Aged Whiskey and Black Cherry Bourbon.
Sickels Moon Handmade
Be inspired by jewelry such as necklaces, rings, earrings, bracelets made from abstract or acrylic pour paintings as well as from gemstones and other upcycled materials.
Be enchanted by handmade wood cutting boards and cutting boards with resin artwork. I learned how to make them from my grandfather, who learned from his father, who came from Germany in the early 1930s.
