Dec 11 2020, 7:45 am

Another Christmas market is taking place at one of the oldest restaurants in the country all weekend.

The second edition of L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel’s Marché de Noël kicks off on Saturday and Sunday from 11 am to 6 pm.

The market offers Montrealers a little bit of everything just in time for the holidays, including trees, ornaments, reefs, treats, food, and gifts — all locally made and sourced.

Local artisans who have set up shop at the market include:

L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel’s 266 years of service has garnered it the distinction of being the oldest still-functioning restaurant in the country.

L’Auberge says they will be offering hot drinks and snacks to outdoor passersby, where a fireplace will also be set up.

If you’re looking for a unique Christmas market this season, one that’s housed in a 266-year-old former inn is probably a smart place to start.

The restaurant tells all local businesses who would like to set up shop at the weekend Christmas market to contact Caroline at [email protected]
