Kitchener’s Christkindl Market

Every December, I go to enjoy the sights and sounds and tastes of Kitchener’s annual German Christmas Market; Towering Christmas trees adorned with lights and pretty ornaments, Christmas carols echoing through the air, fresh-off-the-grill potato pancakes, giant pretzels, hot glühwein (mulled wine), poppyseed squares and marzipan.

So many beautiful gifts to choose from. There are hand-made items by Canadian artisans, imports from Germany, baked goods and lots more.
