Boston Globe calls Toronto Christmas Market the best in North America

A Boston travel writer has fallen in love with Toronto’s charming Christmas Market.

In an article published in The Boston Globe on December 15, Christopher Muther called our annual holiday event “the best Christmas market in North America.”

“I knew the Toronto Christmas Market was a big deal, but I wasn’t expecting that I’d be walking into the finest Christmas market in North America,” he wrote.

Describing the Distillery District as “decidedly European, albeit in a Dickensian way,” Muther said the Toronto Christmas Market is successful because it has everything you need for shopping and eating.

“But it’s one of the best markets because of its spirit,” he said. “It’s not necessarily about the shopping here, it’s about the bustle, the beautiful lights, the caroling, and unbridled seasonal cheer that it all somehow imparts.”

And of course, in Toronto we all knew this.

The Toronto Christmas Market runs until December 23. The Market features entertainment, beer gardens, vendors, and a whole lot of Christmas cheer.

This year’s holiday tradition also features one of the city’s largest real Christmas trees this year, which will be over 50 feet high and have over 18,000 ornaments and lights.

So head down and check out the magic the Boston Globe is talking about.
