LOTS OF MARKETS COMING UP!!! I officially declare December as Market Month! I know I will be doing a lot of Holiday Market Hopping (#HMH)!!

Markets and craft shows pop up left, right, and centre during December. The holidays are around the corner and decorating and gift giving are on the rise during this time. We spend our time looking for that “perfect” gift for our friends and loved ones. Markets are a fantastic place to find a unique or personalized gift while supporting small businesses and local talent.

I’ve included a big list of special markets and craft shows (and a few other fun things) happening in the month of December in the Toronto area. The events are in chronological order.
