Christmas market and children's book readings on December 15

On December 15 from 10 AM to 4 PM during Kalnciema Quarter Christmas market we invite you to get cosy in our Brown house, drink some warm tea, hot chocolate or mulled wine, eat delicious cakes from the market and listen to  the books' readings together with their authors and the most famous Latvian children's book publisher "Liels un mazs".

You are also invited to visit Christmas pop-up market in Kalnciema Quarter gallery. During December each week there will be a different pop-up market that will gather local designers and craftsmen with their presents. Pop-up market will work from Monday to Sunday.

The farm produce, arts and crafts market is a long-standing tradition at Kalnciema Quarter, offering the citizens and visitors of Riga exquisite local products made by farmers, artisans and designers – the goods not to be found on the shelves of supermarkets. The locals particularly enjoy the friendly, intimate atmosphere of the market.

A large program for families with children is also planned - several book presentation events, concerts and various creative workshops suitable for holidays. A special program is provided for each Saturday and Sunday of December. Participation in all events is free of charge.

Kalnciema Quarter markets take place for almost 10 years in the yard of the restored 19th century wooden buildings, where farmers and craftsmen from all over Latvia meet in the same place. Visitors of Riga have an opportunity to get to know local culture at Kalnciema Quarter and find unique pottery from Latgale, traditional rye-bread made according to ancient Latvian recipes, valuable linen and wool products, modern Latvian design works, unusual gifts for loved ones or simply enjoy a great, freshly squeezed apple juice.
