Description

Of all of the Christmas markets in France, Amiens has most delectable selections of little crafty goods and delightful tasty sweets to admire and or take home. Sample the Beauvais chocolate tuiles, amiens macaroons, local Maroilles cheeses, pâtés, smoked and potted eel, shrimp, duck and trout, praline and nougat mousse under the Alpine light of the city center. Once your belly is content you should begin stocking up on non-edible gifts for all of your relatives and friends; there's crystal, glass, weavings, soaps and other beauty products, as well as locally made Angora sweaters. You'll find very few goods from outside of France since Amiens showcases local talents and merchandise. It's the largest Christmas Market in northern France and while the city is manageable, there is a chance you will get lost in the over 140 stalls and mini-chalets, bustling with goods and booths underneath the massive and impressive Gothic cathedral, the city's World Heritage Site.
