An Uncommon Celebration
Dec. 3, 2022
The Village at Grand Traverse Commons is a shopping destination all year round, but we especially love a visit during their Christmas in the Village celebration for the ambiance and the deals. This year’s event runs Dec. 10-11, with shopping specials at Mercato merchants, carriage rides on the grounds, and a Santa station and Christmas activities for the littles. Saturday is also the Commons’ indoor farmers market, which brings together dozens of local farmers, bakers, and makers to fill your winter pantry. At the time of this writing, all of the Commons’ guided tours have openings as well, so you might as well make a day of it. Choose from the Guided Historic Building & Tunnel Tour (two hours long and best for all ages); the Taste of the Village Tour (21+ with stops at Left Foot Charley and Earthen Ales); or the more adventurous Twilight Tour and Flashlight Tour.
