Gluten-free or vegetarian? 20 alternative Prague holiday markets

Gluten-free or vegetarian? 20 alternative Prague holiday markets

‘Tis the season for pine-scented headaches, spirit-trampling crowds, and pick-pocketing.

If Prague’s traditional Christmas markets are not your cup of mulled wine, these smaller-scale events promise plenty of shopping and festive food and drink minus the tourist hordes (if you’re ok with those, see here).



From a market that caters to celiacs or a Christmas celebration of the vegetarian lifestyle — plus plenty of design pop-ups — there’s something here for everyone:
