Pink Piggy Barbecue
While barbecue is her jam, Chef Christina, will be channeling her German heritage and providing delicious bratwursts and sauerkraut for our Christkindlmarkt.
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!
Daisy Cakes, a Hudson Farmer’s Market favorite, will be returning to Hudson at this year’s Christkindlmarkt with special German-themed flavors and your usual favorites—decorated for the season. Make sure to pop on by and grab some for the “kiddos”.

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.
Keep toasty warm while staying fashionable with hats, scarves, and accessories from alpaca wool! Needle felted sculptures, ornaments, and wall hangings will make the perfect gift (for someone else or for yourself).
Traditions From Germany
Imported decorations from the heart of Christmas in Germany: the Erzgebirge! These wooden nutcrackers, Christmas pyramids, incense smokers, and other decorations are handcrafted in Germany. Bring a taste of German traditions home with you!

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.
MishMoccs are handmade leather baby moccasins intended to guide our children’s first steps and honor our veteran’s sacrifice. MishMoccs is focused on employing retired veterans and donating a percentage of profit from each sale to aid disabled veterans.
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!
