Montreal’s only traditionally German Christmas market is to be found in St. John’s Lutheran Church, just off Place des Arts. Here visitors delight in browsing - and buying - handmade Christmas crafts created in the age old European tradition. There's also German inspired cuisine to enjoy, in the shape of sausages, sauerkraut and of course a glass of mulled wine.
There are more than 50 chalet style wooden stalls to investigate at Montreal's enchanting Christmas Village at the Atwater Market. Market holders display unique gifts that can't be found anywhere else. This most atmospheric of Montreal Christmas markets also features visits to Santa, story-telling and seasonal games to play.
For those seeking something totally original as a Christmas gift, Salon des metiers d'art du Quebec at Place Bonaventure Exhibition Halls is a must. More than 400 artisanal makers from across Quebec gather to sell their wares, from jewelery to handmade winter clothing and, of course, gourmet food to enjoy.
