It's the beginning of November, Halloween just wrapped up and people are already in the holiday mood! I'm a big fan of the holidays but this is too early for me. But believe it or not, coming up next week is the first Christmas market of the season in Rochester, MN.

Are you ready for the holidays? I think I'm not ready because as I'm writing this is beautiful outside so it doesn't feel like the holidays weather-wise (not that I'm complaining about that). I think part of it is also because I love Halloween so I'm not ready to let go of spooky season just yet.

Doesn't matter what I think though, we have a Christmas market to go to on Saturday and Sunday, November 12th-13th!


MN Christmas Market, Rochester, MN

The MN Christmas Market has events throughout the state. Last year was actually their first year bringing the Christmas Market to Rochester. It was only one day last year but they say on their Facebook event that it was so popular they're doing 2 days this year. This year, the Christmas Market in Rochester is coming up on the 12th and 13th.

Even though I'm not ready for the holidays I'll be trying to make it this year! I have a friend's wedding on the 12th so hopefully I can make it on the 13th.

There will be all kinds of vendors to shop and it's only $1 to get in. Some other markets like this charge way more than a dollar just to get in the door. It's being held at the Mayo Civic Center 10 AM - 4 PM on both Saturday the 12th and Sunday the 13th.
