Oswin Takes: The Annecy Christmas Market

Just before Christmas we decided to round out our European Christmas Market tour with one last french market in Annecy...

Now we love love LOVE Annecy - it's one of our favorite cities in France...

...and since it's so close to us, we try to go every chance we get. 

...but I have to say, we were a bit disappointed with the Christmas Market. 

Maybe it was because we had just gone to two great Christmas markets in Freiburg and Basel, as well as the festive and colorful Mulhouse Christmas Market, but we really had expected more in Annecy. 

It was really small...

...and didn't have, as far as we could see, even one ornament stand. 

There were a lot of food stands, and strangely enough, a lot of Canadian goods advertised, but really it felt like a lot of the shops had just set up a stand outside of their stores and were selling the same items from inside. It didn't feel much like a Christmas market, more like a weekly outdoor market. We did however have a great cup of apple cider made with Jura honey, so that was a win right there. 

Despite being a bit disappointed by the Christmas Market, we had a gorgeous day to walk around one of our favorite cities, pick up some yummy goodies, and even buy a new sweater for mama. As per usual, a great day in Annecy!

A biento Annecy! Can't wait to see you again soon!

A la prochaine friends...
