I have been to a lot of Christmas Market here in Germany (Stuttgart, Durlach, Kaiserslautern, Esslingen and more) but this is my favorite of them all. It is small enough that you get to see everything and enjoy the food as well. (I had the fresh smoked salmon - they were smoking the salmon there!)
The market opens at 11 and we were there at 1130. The line in the food stalls are not that long yet and so we were able to enjoy eating and drinking our gluhwein. We were able to take our time browsing the different products in the store, too. As the place were starting to get crowded, we bought a ticket to see the Abbey. And before it starts geting really dark, we started heading out.
Maulbronn's Christmas market is only 1 weekend in December so you have to check the dates before hand. They also have Easter market which I heard is really worth the visit, too.
The ticket for the Abbey is 17 Euro for a family of 4.
