A FREE magical Nutcracker Market returns to Montreal this month

Nov 5 2019, 9:43 pm

Every holiday season, the Nutcracker Market brings together hundreds of local artisans for a magical shopping experience and it’s returning at the end of the month for its 10th edition.

The market started in 2010 in support of The Nutcracker Fund for Children, and the charity Christmas market has come to symbolize the kick-off of holiday celebrations.

Ten per cent of all exhibitor’s sales go towards the fund and each year gives disadvantaged children a unique holiday experience that includes a free performance of The Nutcracker, animated creative workshops and gifts.

The majority of exhibitors at the market are Canadian-grown businesses from Montreal and its surrounding areas. A full list of the 2019 exhibitors can be found online as well as photos of their unique projects.


Hundreds of exhibitors will be in attendance selling everything from gourmet food and hand-knit mittens, to gorgeous jewelry, and sweet-smelling candles. The market will display gifts for everyone in your life – children, partners, friends, and family.


The market takes place on the ground floor of Montreal’s historic Palais des congrès.
