One of the greatest imports Chicago receives all year is this open-air holiday market that takes over Daley Plaza, inspired by the centuries-old tradition in Nuremberg, Germany.
Drink spiced gluhwein in the beer tent; nosh on a butcher’s dozen of sausages; find handcrafted ornaments from real Bavarian vendors, and save room for the sweet house.
Christkindlmarket continues through Dec. 24 at Daley Plaza, 50 W. Washington. Opens at 11 a.m. Free. christkindlmarket.com — Selena Fragassi
