Grouse Mountain to be transformed into a Christmas village for the holidays

0

There were amazing local vendors selling everything from spices to Christmas sweaters. By far my favorite was the Chocolate House, which I rushed to as soon as I entered.

You can get a skewer with fruit and marshmallows for $ 7.50, and it’s covered with your choice of white or dark chocolate.

Seems a bit pricey for a few strawberries on a stick, but the chocolate is so delicious it’s worth it.

I also typed these pretzels, attracted to their super cute neon sign. A small bag of pretzels costs $ 8 and a large bag $ 18.

They are coated in savory flavors and make the perfect snack to snack on as you stroll through the market.

You can’t go to a holiday market without mulled wine, of course. A mug costs $ 9 which is a bit steep, but my hands were cold enough that I would have paid anything to hold a hot mug.

Seems like drinking is a big part of European markets, well, when in Rome …

I went to the “Schnapsplatz” area which was right on the water and had a stand for holiday inspired spirits. Crescent Hill WineRy was in the booth and their wine was amazing. They also had a variety of spirits to try, with fun flavors.

You should also hit the deli stand when you go there, which is run by Cut N Block, from Kamloops, BC

They have so many fresh flavors which were all amazing to taste. You can take some home for $ 9.99 which is a good price for the quality.

If you really want to improve your holiday party, you have to get some of this cheese from Damiani Fine Foods. You could tell the owners were so passionate about their business and their cheese was to die for.

Personally, I love to reheat mulled wine at home when the days get colder. It’s my favorite holiday tradition.

So I went to the stand that sells mulled wine spices, and everything looked great. It was quite reasonably priced, at $ 8.50 for a pack, so I would say it’s worth stocking up on.

There were also vendors with things like greeting cards, hats, sweaters and scarves.

I like to go mainly for food, to enjoy it while I’m at it, especially since other things can get a bit pricey. It’s an amazing way to shop local and buy all of your holiday gifts in one go.

The carousel is also free this year, with an option to donate to the Make-A-Wish Foundation!

Going to the market put me in a festive mood, even so early on, which I loved.

They have live shows, a carousel, hanging lights, and a seating area. Walking around the different vendors with a delicious cup of mulled wine in hand is the perfect winter activity.
