The local press are reporting a downturn in numbers for the market this year. The official explanation is the weather but many people say it is getting tackier and not worth visiting. We lived in Germany for a while and I have to admit the markets there were brilliant. Lots of traditional and very Christmassy stuff (not burgers, more burgers and tat). We didn't visit this year for just that reason. What did anyone else who came along really think?
