The Christmas Bazaar t St Bridget's and Blessed Hemming's Parish in Turku is traditionally arranged by the parish youth.
Setting up for the bazaar on the First Sunday of Advent begins on Friday: there is a lot to do in the St Bridget Hall and Parish Hall, but even before that the work has begun to get all the baked goods and delicious foods made. Among other things, you will be able to buy boxes of biscuits (or cookies, if you prefer) made according to a recipe by St Hildegard of Bingen. Hildegard herself stated that her biscuits would cleanse the senses and cause an increase of joy. St Hildegard may have mixed her last batch in the 12th century, but that sounds like a recipe for today!
St Bridget's Parish Christmas Bazaar
Of course there are lots of other goodies on offer: food from Vietnam, Poland and Iraq. Ginger snaps by the Knights of Malta have been mentioned, and that's just the beginning. The place to start your preparations for Christmas is the St Bridget Bazaar at Ursininkatu 15 in Turku.
