We first visited the Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery District last year. Anna and I made an agreement to come back every year when possible. Well we nearly missed it, but managed to go on a random adventure for a couple hours on December 20th, which was actually the last day!!
We were both a little bit tired after Gaby’s Christmas party, but we wouldn’t have missed it for the world. It was a chilly day, but the skies were bright, and being early in the day it wasn’t too crowded yet.
We walked around for a couple of hours taking in all the sights and scents. So many wonderful little stalls and shops! And we couldn’t resist the scent of the good old Canadian poutine and hot apple cider. They also were perfect for warming us up on this cold day. However, the portion was way too small for two hungry girls. So we decided to split a grilled cheese sandwich…it was deliciously cheesy and was well worth the long wait!
My favourite part of the market had to be the simple but beautiful Christmas decor. Rustic letters with light bulbs spreading holiday joy. Evergreens in red pots with white lights. Wreaths with red and gold berries and bows. Wonderful and magical. A fun afternoon with my little sister!
Until next year, Toronto Christmas Market.
