Located at 200 L Street SE, the Market will run from December 2 to December 22.
Specifically, the market will include: Rudolph’s Roadside Stand: Warm up with good conversation and a cup of hot cocoa (or coffee) at Rudolph’s Roadside Stand.

The Christkindl Market also offers free tree delivery. Local Music: Enjoy music of the season from a cappella groups and local musician Kayte Grace as you roam through the market.

“It is with heavy hearts, that we announce today we will be closing Monkeys’ Uncle at the end of the year. It has been an amazing 5 years, and we consider our little shop a huge success in almost every measure.
The one measure that has eluded us is financial success. Our plan is to operate through the month of December, selling down the current inventory of clothing. We will not book full appointments, but will
continue with our “Quickie 3″ for a few more weeks so that we are able to supply your little ones with seasonally appropriate essentials. The selection in our store right now is quite good and we encourage our friends, loyal customers, and consignors to stop by and stock up.
We are thankful for the friendship and kindness that the community has embraced us with, and consider ourselves blessed for the experience.”
