we have this market in the city every year but the latest one was a complete rip -off , more food and drink stalls than craft stalls and at prices that made you just walk on by.

We came from Germany ... and found a soulless, interchangeable standard copy of any modern "Christmas (mass) Market". Oviously there is an entrepreneur who organizes DOZENS of these markets worldwide, all according to exactly the same scheme: pseudo "cosiness", pseudo "authentic" craft made in China, overpriced drinks ... a purely commercial affair without any spirit, apart from alcoholic ones (even...

All told it was extremely disappointing and... More

There are some good craft stalls, a lot of which sell identical goods at different prices. This suggests that goods are bought in as opposed... More
