Every holiday season, the Nutcracker Market brings together hundreds of local artisans for a magical shopping experience.
The market started in 2010 in support of The Nutcracker Fund for Children, the country’s first charity Christmas market symbolizes the kick-off of the holiday celebrations.
10% of all exhibitor’s sales go towards the Fund that 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 2018 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.
