No need to travel to Europe for “Chirstkindlmarkt”… just take the LRT to St. Paul’s Union Depot next weekend for their free open-air event based on the traditional markets that spring up in Germany and Austria during the holiday season.

St. Paul’s European Christmas Market is back for it’s third year. We stopped by this weekend for a festive afternoon surrounded by carolers, dancers, European inspired food and drink and unique handmade holiday gifts, handblown glass ornaments, clothing and decorations.
