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

L’Auberge Saint-Gabriel is offering 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.

The historic restaurant’s 1st annual Marché du Noel kicked off on Thursday and will shine bright through until Sunday evening.

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

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

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.
