This month Philadelphia is welcoming the opening of the first Bloomingdale’s Outlet Store at Liberty Place and, until December 28, the traditional European Christmas market with vendors in more than 60 wooden booths selling food, sweets and drinks returns to Love Park.

Admission is free and attractions include a festive Käthe Wohlfahrt tent featuring popular Christmas gifts from Germany, including glass ornaments, music boxes and nutcrackers as well as a life-size advent calendar.

For clients seeking locally-made gifts to take home, the new Made In Philadelphia Holiday Market at Dilworth Park showcases local artists, crafters, confectionaries and designers. Meanwhile, foodies can pay a special visit to the Artisan Bakery, which offers a range of gourmet treats including macaroons, chocolates, pretzels, mini doughnuts and steaming hot chocolate.
