One of the greatest shopping experiences you will ever have is visiting the Christmas fairs and markets in Austin. We have the most talented, passionate, and amazing people who live here and offer their products and services at these fairs and markets. Not only will you get fantastic things at good prices, but you will also be supporting our locals and their hard work. There are so many of these markets, but I have chosen a few that I have really enjoyed over the years.
Blue Genie Art Bazaar
This is one of my favorite markets to visit. I love art and this bazaar features works from over 200 of our local artists. You will find jewelry, paintings, sculptures, and prints that will blow your mind. For a truly unique and arty experience, visit this 4-week bazaar this year.
Gruene Market Days
This is one of the markets that run every month of the year but takes on the full Christmas spirit in December. You will find the best Christmas gifts at this market. It will be unique and you will be in high spirits the whole of December. The market also offers fun things to do for the kids.
Cherrywood Art Fair
This fair is only in town for a few days in December and it is not to be missed! Cherrywood is the longest-running non-profit art fair in East Austin and will not cause you a single minute of boredom. There is so much to see, to do, and to appreciate. I will be attending again this year as my favorite artists will have booths.
Hutto Downtown Christmas Fair
Those of you in North Austin, you have a pretty special fair coming your way again. Hutto has the best family-friendly fair that offers something for the kids and mom and dad. The kids can play, have a train ride, or have their faces painted. They also show a movie in the park every year.
With all these fairs and markets coming up, we best start saving for Christmas now. All these markets and fairs offer the best products from our local artists, artisans, and entrepreneurs. Don’t miss out!
