Meet our Vendors!
Meet the volunteers behind the event as they sell Glühwein (mulled wine), draft beer and mulled apple cider to warm your soul and wool mittens to keep your fingers toasty! Proceeds fund youth exchange, scholarships, and activities with our sister city of Landsberg, Germany.
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!
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. Daisy Pops is a local bakery that specializes in creating delightful and delicious cake pops. With dozens of flavors and endless designs, these treats are sure to add a little extra pop to your day.
Young Entrepreneur Market
YEM offers hand-crafted items created by K-12 students including but not limited to greeting cards, baked products, 3D printed ornaments, coasters, pet pillows, soap. We will have new Young Entrepreneurs every 4 hours so stop by frequently to see what the next generation is thinking up!
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.
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. This year he is bringing a newly created wall of comical and lovable puppets called "Scragles". The Toymaker believes imaginative play is the best way to learn!
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!
100% of donations and sales will be donated to WAGS 4 Kids!
Ricky & Charlie's Old World Bakery
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!
The folks at Orchard Canyon Heirlooms keep an American craft alive. We hand bend, solder,and snip tinplate into the highest quality tin cookie cutters and accessories available today. Throughout the house, barn and workshop of our 1850’s Ohio farmstead, we recreate a product unique to Colonial and Early American tinsmiths.
These mittens are made from felted wool sweaters and lined with thick warm polar fleece to keep your fingers toasty-warm and fashionable all winter. Stop by the Hudson Christkindlmarkt tent to try a pair on!
Sandee River Farms
Sandee River Farms is excited to be part of the 2022 Hudson Christkindlmarkt. We will have dried herbs, dried herb blends, herb teas, and potpourri. We will also be bringing gift boxes and hostess gifts with our selections of dried herb blends and tea. We have photo cards and matted prints done by Lisa Malak.
"Get 'em off the iPad and into the woods!" That's been my motto! These books, prints and games with vibrant pictures will encourage young nature lovers and their families to watch and listen for wildlife in their own backyards and other places near home.
