       Last Minute Gift & Tree Trimming Ideas at Lock 3’s Chriskindl Market
There are only a few shopping days left before Christmas! Avoid the mall crowds and find one-of-a-kind
items at Lock 3 Park’s Chriskindl Market, the largest seasonal Christmas Market between New York
and Chicago. Featuring twelve cottages housed by vendors from Akron sister-city of Chemnitz,
Germany, the Chriskindl Market offers unique items such as wooden toys, glass ornaments, candles and
ceramics not found anywhere else in the area, along with a unique shopping experience sure to get
anyone in the holiday spirit.

In addition to gifts, the Market offers some distinctive items to decorate the home or tree for the
holidays–from handmade tablecloths and wooden arches to nutcrackers and blown glass ornaments that
can be customized on the spot with the hand painted name of your choice. A full list of vendors and
items available for purchase is below.

Hungry from shopping? Check out the Hutzenstub. Sure to beat the fare at any mall food court, this
large heated area adjacent to the Chriskindl Market cottages offers a full menu of authentic German
food. From soups and potato pancakes to the signature bratwurst and sauerkraut, items can be purchased
to eat-in or to-go. The full Hutzenstub menu is listed below as well.

The Chriskindl Market and Hutzenstub, along with Lock 3’s ice skating rink–the largest season skating
rink in Ohio–is open Monday, December 18 through Saturday, December 23 from 11 am to 9 pm and
Sunday, December 24 from 11 am to 6 pm.
