This past weekend I visited the Downtown Rochester Kris Kringle Market with some of my family. The event was inspired by the 700-year old tradition of open-air Christmas markets found throughout Europe. The Market featured Michigan made goods, one-of-a-kind shopping, specialty foods, fresh greens & wreaths and handcrafted gifts for the holiday. The entire stretch of Downtown was lit up with Christmas lights, each building a different color. While there I visited the very busy Holy Cannoli’s. They are a family owned business with three generations of cannoli makers providing handmade traditional and Gluten Free cannoli. The cannoli and toffee were great, handmade in Rochester Michigan. I recommend visiting next year and think this event will become part of my holiday tradition.
