North Carolina Has Its Very Own European Christmas Market And You’ll Want To Visit

When it comes to Christmas, many of our small-town and city markets are simply charming. The role model they follow is the elaborate Christmas markets and ornate displays found throughout European cities. From Paris to Prague, the Europeans celebrate Christmas in extravagant fashion with culture-filled markets brimming with the smells, sights, and sounds of the holidays. If you’re looking to experience a Christmas Market that comes close in comparison, St. Nicholas European Christmas Market in Raleigh is a must.
