From 24th November to 24th December 2012, Trento will host the well-known Christmas Market in the suggestive Piazza Fiera. Now at its 20th edition, the Trento Christmas Market, with its 68 wooden huts, has made the town of Trento one of the top destinations for holidaymakers looking for a Christmas atmosphere. Wooden huts sell traditional decorations for Christmas trees and nativity scenes, crafts, cakes, local products, original gift ideas, and gourmet specialities in a special food section. In keeping with tradition, at the middle of the main square, a gourmet section will be dedicated to the specialities of Trentino. There will be 16 wooden huts hosting the “Flavours of the Christmas Market”, where you can taste apple strudel, “treccia mochèna” (plaited pastry cake), “polenta brustolada” (grilled polenta), traditional recipes (sweet and savoury) from the Trentino and the Tyrol regions and local dishes such as “tortel di patate” (potato cake). There are many more mouth-watering treats including organic cheese and goat cheese, “goulash zuppe” (goulash soup), “speck” (smoked ham), “canederli” (dumplings) and filled pasta, as well as sweets, pastries and hot chocolate. Drinks include the very popular “vin brulè”(mulled wine) of Trentino and “parampampoli” (hot toddy).
