A local favorite, the Mistletoe Market is back in its 5th year with 60+ vendors selling locally produced goods + gifts. Since its start in 2017 it has been known for its carefully curated selection of local makers and a warm, cozy hygge experience. The Mistletoe Market will be twice as sweet with two events scheduled again for this holiday season – one in Urbana and one in Champaign, IL. Both events are free to attend and family-friendly.
“The Mistletoe Market is really about bringing local customers and local makers, artisans and artists together.” says Anna Gutsch, Co-organizer of the event. “Many vendors are deeply engaged in the creation of their items and when customers purchase from them, they not only support a local family-business but also the continuation of their craft for years to come!”
To honor its Urbana roots, Mistletoe Market will start at Lincoln Square Mall in the South-East and the East Hallway. Warm up with a delicious glass of German Glűhwein (mulled wine) and shop a large selection of local artisans while enjoying wintery decorations and holiday music. “We have created a dreamy winter wonderland market that celebrates the holidays and community,” said Anna Gutsch, organizer of Mistletoe Market CU.
Mistletoe Market Urbana will be held on Saturday, December 3rd from 10am-5pm at Lincoln Square Mall in Urbana, IL.
Mistletoe Market Champaign will be held on Sunday, December 18th from 11am-5pm at The Venue CU in downtown Champaign, IL.
The Mistletoe Market is coming to life through the initiative of NORDEN – German Design Studio. Founded as a multidisciplinary Design Studio in 2013 by Johann Rischau and Anna Gutsch, NORDEN works with a diverse range of clients with the shared goal to design meaningful products, spaces and experiences.
Mistletoe Market CU is organized by NORDEN German Design Studio + Shop dedicated to creating locally designed + made goods and gifts. Visit their design store and browse their selection of NORDEN home goods and Pipapo – birch jewelry on Friday afternoons and Saturdays downtown Urbana at 206 W Main Street.
