It’s time for holiday market season and one of Brooklyn’s most popular traditions — the Danish Seamen’s Christmas Fair — is back.

The annual market offers gifts and treats to get you ready for the gift-giving season. You can snap up some Scandinavian designed knitwear, ornaments and other gift items as well as sample some traditional Danish food. There will be hot glögg, candy, baked goods, hot dogs and smørrebrød (open-faced sandwiches).

Normally a two-day event, the free market is open just one day this year, on Saturday, November 18 from 11 a.m. to 6 p.m. It takes place at two locations in Brooklyn Heights — the Danish Seamen’s Church at 102 Willow Street and at Plymouth Church at 54 Orange Street.
