11 shots from Old Montreal's magical Christmas alleyway (PHOTOS)

A Christmas alleyway in Old Montreal has easily become one of the most picturesque spots in the entire city.

The entrance to Maison Pepin’s “Le Marché de Noël” has been transformed into a magical Christmas alleyway and dazzling pictures have been flooding Instagram since the alley went full-holiday mode at the end of November.

The market itself features a variety of locally-made products for sale and DIY workshops from gift packaging to wreath making.

Without taking away from the local artisans, the alleyway is one of the most picturesque Christmas-themed spots in the city. The narrow walls, dim lighting, light snow, and wreaths look like a combination right out of a Harry Potter movie.

In an email to Daily Hive, Lysanne Pepin, the shop’s owner, says all the proper COVID-19 health and safety precautions will be in effect for this winter’s market. She says the alleyways kiosks will be distanced.

Pepin says all of the shop’s decorations are handmade in-store and shoppers will be able to pre-order wreaths and ornaments online.

The shop, located at 378 Rue St-Paul Ouest, is open every day from 10 am to 6 pm and we’re betting a few engagement proposals will take place in this magical alleyway this holiday season.

If you haven’t had a chance to check out the magical spot, here are 17 pictures from this season’s rustic and enchanting alleyway.
