Its that time of year again! Time for the Houston Ballet’s annual Nutcracker Market and the kick off of the Holiday season. The Nutcracker Market, which is being held at Reliant Center, is a shopping extravaganza. It boasts over 300 merchants offering unique items of home decor, gourmet food items, toys, decorations, accessories and much, much more.
Last year over 66,000 people attended the Nutcracker Market. But don’t worry there is still room for you to attend. Over the years, I have seen some fabulous items that their owners have told me they were purchased at the Nutcracker Market. There are reports that some of the gourmet food items are so popular that the vendor’s entire stock has been depleted in the first day of the event.
The Nutcracker Market has a long history dating back to its inception in 1981. Since then the Nutcracker Market has contributed over $24 million to the Houston Ballet Foundation to support its scholarship programs. The Nutcracker Market is such a fun way to support the Arts.
The Nutcracker Market runs from 10 am to 8 pm on November 8th and 9th and from 10 am to 6 pm on November 10th and 11th. Admission is $11 at the door. But you can purchase an advance ticket at Randall’s for $10. Reserve a day on your calendar for a visit to the Nutcracker Market in Houston. You are sure to find a unique item that you will treasure for years to come!
