I love all things Christmas so thoroughly enjoy going to the Nutcracker market and buying up on the gourmet foods.

My husband (and many of my friends’ husbands) cannot think of anything worse than looking through stall after stall of Christmas themed merchandise.  And as you are not allowed to bring strollers to the event, I suggest leaving the kids and husband at home so you can take your time at this massive Christmas festivity.
