The German Christmas Market at Sussex County was brought to life in 2001 by a small handful of volunteers desiring to recreate an authentic German Christmas Market, which they were familiar with, with the intention to raise funds for local Sussex County, NJ charities. Recognized as the largest annual Christmas Market in the State of New Jersey, and the only German Christmas Market in the USA, whose sole mission is to donate back into the community, it has become a fixture in the local region. Since 2013 NJ.com has ranked The German Christmas Market Foundation, Inc. as one of the Top 10 things to do in December.
The German Christmas Market of NJ is comprised of 100% volunteers. All money collected through booth sales and the famous Cookie Hut is used to pay fees for services and the remained is then donated to local charities. Several local businesses donate their time and services for free or at a reduced rate in order to make this magical event come to life each Christmas.
