Superior's German-style Christmas market returns to the Community Gardens at Hammond Avenue and Broadway Street this weekend

The outdoor market features many returning vendors, and two well-known Superior businesses are planning to participate this year. And the Princess Pine Wreath lady is back by popular request, according to organizer Heike McDonald.

Smooch & Pooch is coming Sunday with a huge variety of gifts for dogs big and small, and Thirsty Pagan Brewery is offering a nutty, nonalcoholic drink, "Hot Worties," this year.

The market runs 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Saturday, Dec. 1, and Dec. 8 and noon to 5 p.m. Sunday, Dec. 2.
