Top 5 Toronto Christmas Markets

It wouldn’t be Christmas without checking out one of the many holiday markets going on around Toronto.

Here’s a list of the top 5:

  1. Toronto Christmas Market

    Where: Distillery District
    When: Through Dec 22 (closed Mondays)
    What’s there: The largest Christmas market in Toronto is also arguably the most popular (and most famous: it was named one of the world’s best Christmas markets last year by Fodor’s). Highlights include hand-crafted ornaments, a carousel, carollers and a Santa brought in on Tuesdays specifically to pose with pets.

  2. Yorkville Village Holiday Market

    Where: 136 Yorkville Ave.
    When: Through Dec. 22
    What’s there: Yorkville’s freshman entry into the seasonal market game is as swanky as the neighbourhood itself. Alongside holiday entertaining workshops and promises of fresh Beaver Tails, the multi-level holiday market features a pop-up spa, DIY tuque station and holiday party-ready baubles from Petite Etoile.

  3. Holiday Fair at Nathan Phillips Square

    Where: Nathan Phillips Square
    When: Through Dec. 21
    What’s there: The pavilion outside City Hall hosts its first holiday market, offering traditional street food, artisanal crafts, carnival-style rides for the kids and an open-air ice bar for some holiday spirits.

  4. Winter Village

    Where: Evergreen Brick Works (550 Bayview Ave.)
    When: Dec. 10-Feb. 28
    What’s there: From Christmas trees and canned goods to heirloom seeds and packets of salt-and-pepper mealworms, Winter Village is basically a one-stop holiday shop. Plus, with a farmer’s market taking place each Saturday, Christmas shoppers can squeeze in a quick grocery pick-up, too.

  5. City of Craft

    Where: The Theatre Centre, 1115 Queen Street W. (entrance on Lisgar St.)
    When: Dec. 9-11
    What’s there: Toronto’s craftiest holiday market turns 10 this year, showcasing some of the city’s best artisans and entrepreneurs, with gems from Rare Specimens, ceramics from Ness Lee and handmade skincare from Corktown Soap.
