I had hoped for more local artists. It was a bit hard to tell if products were handmade or imported. Expensive admission fee if considering bringing a family.

Pay to get in. Overcrowded. How much hand crafted Christmas items can you possibly need or want? This was nice to go through ONCE in my lifetime. I got free tickets from someone. Glad I didn't pay to get in.

Parking is one of the horrible things. Free, but where they have you park is what I question. There is a skating arena down the road, they have all the good parking, yet the lots are empty with warnings of "skate parking only". Other then...More

A great place that's a lot of fun. It's very crowded, but the vendors were all great and it has a nice atmosphere.

After many years of wondering whether the entrance fee was worthwhile, I found out the answer this year-- no. First, parking is far away. The close lot is usually immediately filled and many spaces are reserved for Artsquest members. Second, the amount of vendors that...More

Many booths with crafts all which are relatively overpriced. To start it is $9.00 per person just to enter. There are great crafts if that is your thing. Food choices were very few and not very good from what we tried.

This was the second time we visited the market. I enjoy looking at the German nutcrackers, cookoo clocks and other glass and wooden ornaments hover the prices are outlandish. At $10-30 bucks per ornament, we're talking a small fortune to trim a tree. I thought...More

Just follow the signs when you get nearby. Parking is about a block or so away. Basically behind the Steel Stacks.

There is plenty of parking. There is a large lot behind the Steel Stacks building. Parking was free.
