The Christkindlmarket opens in the Loop, Wrigleyville and Naperville this week

The Christkindlmarket is a long-standing holiday tradition in Chicago. For 22 years, our city has had a taste of the famous German holiday market smack dab in the middle of the Loop, right in Daley Center. Everyone should come once a year for some hot chocolate in an adorable collector's mug.

However, did you know that you do not have to come downtown to experience the magic of the market? There will be a Christkindlmarket in Naperville and Wrigleyville, just outside Wrigley Field, opening on November 24! The suburban Naperville edition will be held at the Naper Settlement.

Make sure you swing by at least one of these markets this season.
