2021 Vaillancourt Christkindlesmarkt & Artisan Show (Saturday)

Saturday, November 13, 2021 , 10:00 am - Saturday, November 13, 2021 , 6:00 pm

Celebrate the season with a traditional German Christmas Market in the quintessential New England town of Sutton!

Tickets will be available this summer!

With the loosening of pandemic restrictions, we’re pleased to be re-introducing the tradition of Sutton’s Christkindlesmarkt & Artisan Show where we feature the industries most respected and detailed artists alongside authentic food, drink, and merriment during a European-style outdoor Christmas Market.

For this year, the event will feature reduced capacity staggered admission throughout the day and night to insure a comfortable, safe, environment that is spread between the outdoor food and beverage pavilion, the artisan hall, and our Retail Gallery.

Originally introduced in 2019, this Christkindlesmarkt & Artisan Show is a tip of the hat to our formidable years or doing retail shows, combined with the aspirational idea of the German Christmas markets. We’re thrilled to have the following American artisans join us:

Dad’s Follies Antique Chocolate Molds

(Gibsonville, North Carolina)

Dad’s Follies is the oldest and largest antique dealer specializing in antique metal chocolate moulds in the world. For over 45 years Dad’s Follies has been specializing in buying and selling antique metal chocolate and pewter ice cream moulds and are a family owned company that is currently in its second generation of Mould Experts. They currently exhibit at private shows and offer their moulds online.

Will Moses

(Eagle Bridge, New York)

As a fourth generation member of the renowned Moses family, painting is a natural tradition for Will, who began painting when he was four years old. Encouraged by his grandfather, a well-known folk painter in his own right, young Will was allowed to experiment freely with paints. Forrest K. Moses was totally committed to self-expression and passed this freedom of spirit along to his young grandson. Stimulated by his grandfather’s confident approach, Will developed his own unique style of Americana. Today, Will continues to carry on the family tradition. Although his style is reminiscent of that of his celebrated great-grandmother, it is more complex and sophisticated.

In addition to the Artisan Hall, our outdoor Food & Beverage Pavilion—decorated with live Christmas trees while the smells of food mingles through the air—will feature German pastries (Apfelstrudel, Peffernuesse, Baumkuchen, Spekulatius, Hazelnut Corners, and Schupfnudeln), German Sausages, sweet treats and more. In addition to food available for sale, a cash bar will offer a selection of Christmas wine, beer, and German imported hot glühwein to keep you warm!

Fraulein’s Bakery

Taunton, MA

Fraulein’s Bakery will be returning for a second year with authentic German baked goods and organic European pastries, cookies, and cakes—including Apfelstrudel, Peffernuesse, Baumkuchen, Spekulatius, Hazelnut Corners, and Schupfnudeln.

Stillman Quality Meats

Hardwick, MA

The only farm in Massachusetts featuring a state of the art poultry abattoir and red meat processing/butchering facility—controlling the process from start to finish, raising and processing their meats on their farmsteads in the most sustainable and local way.

Enjoy a cash bar throughout the event where piping hot glühwein, imported directly from Nurgneberg Germany, is served in collectors mugs. In addition, a fine selection of Christmas beer and wine is served alongside a hot chocolate and bottled water that is to be enjoyed in the outdoor Food & Beverage Pavilion.
