The Nutcracker Market is opening up again this year for its 9th edition. It will officially be open to the public at the end of November just in time to get you in the Christmas Spirit. Filled with great ideas for Christmas gifts, you’ll definitely want to go have a look and see what treasures you can find. Every kiosque has unique gift ideas you won’t find anywhere else. From handmade objects from local artists to a great wine and food selection, you’re sure to find something for everyone in the family. If you want to give something a little bit more original and unique, then definitely take the time to visit the Nutcracker Market. Even if it’s just to browse and get ideas of your own, you won’t regret it. It’s the perfect activity to get you into the holiday spirit.

You won’t even have to go outside! Public Transport (or indoor parking if you’re driving), it’s right in the heart of Old Montreal

Palais des congrès – Metro Place d’Armes

How much does it cost to get in?

Absolutely nothing! It’s completely FREE! The event is free so you can keep your money for things you want to buy at the market 😉

Are there any activities on site?

There are a few kiosques that offer wine and food tasting. And there’s a section for entertainment for kids as well.

Where can I go eat if I get hungry?

Shopping makes us hungry, it’s a known fact! But don’t worry, there’s a food court right at the Palais des congrès. So if you get hungry, you can grab food from a wide range of restaurant options (Subway, Tim Hortons, Noobox, Sushi Shop, Basha…..)
