While 2020 Christmas markets and craft fairs have been cancelled, the folks at Sweet Thea Bakery are coming to your holiday shopping rescue with the Sweet Thea Holiday Pop-Up. In addition to offering their own celebrated array of traditional European holiday baking (fruitcake, stollen, lebkuchen, plum pudding and many other delectable offerings), they’ve brought together a range of popular products from over a dozen favourite food-related vendors you’d normally find at seasonal markets.
