I know that it's not even Thanksgiving yet but it's time to start planning your schedule so you can be sure you get to to all the holiday markets, tree lightings and holiday light displays.

So consider this your early reminder that the European Christmas Market at the Union Depot in St. Paul opens on November 24th.

Be sure to add European Christmas Market to your holiday season bucket list!

There’s so much to do, so much to see, so much to eat, and gifts galore. This year we are going to be BIGGER than ever to celebrate our 10th anniversary!

The European Christmas Market is open the last weekend in November – 24-26 and the first 3 weekends in December – 1-3, 8-10 & 15-17.

As they mentioned, this local holiday market is expanding this year in celebration of their 10th Anniversary so there'll be even more to explore.  They have added an additional 12 vendors. Plus, they have a variety of food options at 15 different food vendors.

It's an outdoor market so be sure to dress accordingly.  But they'll have outdoor heaters located throughout so you can stop and warm up.  This years added vendors will bring the final total of vendors up to 70 so there'll be plenty of shopping for you to do.
