European Christmas Market Open Year Round - How does it Work?

Gingerbread World is a small online shop brimming with Uniquely European collections for Christmas and year-round. The Holiday Season is, of course, a very special time when all sorts of beautiful and yummy things arrive from Europe and Scandinavia:

Gingerbread World Lebkuchen Schmidt Canada - Authentic Nuremberg Lebkuchen
Traditional German Christmas pastries like Lebkuchen and Stollen and chocolate, marzipan and confections.

Advent Calendars are a really big deal for us - we spend the offseason searching for weird and wonderful options to add to our classics. The Bonne Maman Jam Advent Calendar is always our best seller.

Ornaments, gifts, folk art and decor arrive from studios and workshops all over Europe.

Gingerbread World European Christmas Market Lebkuchen Schmidt Canada
Many of these items are available throughout the year so you can purchase them whenever the Christmas craving hits you!

Edible items are sometimes available after Christmas while supplies and best-before dates last.

Starting late August the Gingerbread World Christmas Market opens for PRE-ORDERS giving you the opportunity to reserve your favourites for delivery later in the Fall when all the items have arrived into our warehouse from Europe.

If you want us to let you know when Christmas Collections are available and when new items or new stock are added to the shop...please leave your email address by clicking here. We promise not to inundate you with emails - we try to write once a month but sometimes that's even too much for us!!!

Enjoy shopping in our little European Market! We're so glad you found us!
