Among the Christmas Markets 2018 in Paris, you have the Alsatian Christmas Market in front of Paris Gare de l’Est held from December 5 to 21, 2018. For this 37th edition of the oldest Alsatian Christmas market outisde its region, all gourmet Holidays traditions are given pride of place under a Big Top sweetly smelling like Alsace.
Kougelhopf, gingerbread and brioche Männele, potato galettes, munster cheese, pork shoulder… We go discover these Alsatian specialties that can be tasted for free. And the icing on the cake: because the Christmas Market will start on Saint Nicholas Day, Maison Fortwenger will offer 500 St Nicholas-inspired gingerbread to kids coming to the market on Wednesday December 5 between 2 p.m. and 6 p.m.
And that's not all since, all along the market, a basket full of Alsatian products would be won every day. To try and win it, you'll have to guess its weights and fill in an entry form!
To prepare your holidays dinners, head to the stands of the fifteen Alsatian artisans to find what Alsatian gastronomy has best like bredele, jams and sweets, goose and duck foie gras, gingerbreads, charcuteries, sauerkraut, cheese, wines and brandies.
