Christmas is on its way and Riga Christmas Market has already opened its stalls in locations across the city. Great for Latvian handcrafts and maybe a glass of hot wine!

Riga Christmas Market

For many years now the Christmas markets in Riga have brought in traders and handcraft workers from across Latvia to sell the many products they have on offer. You will find knitwear, food products, wood work and much more. You may even get to see that big bearded man Mr. S. Claus as well.

 

Not the Christmas Market but a nice shot of winter in the Central Market!

Perfect for picking up souvenirs on your visit in Riga and a great way to see local crafts and cuisine, whilst mingling amongst locals also out to do a spot of Christmas shopping in Riga.
