3 (!!!) Montreal Christmas Markets Are Coming To Bring Us Some Much-Needed Joy This Year

Montreal is getting three Christmas markets this year from the folks at Noël Montréal.

In addition to the beloved and wildly successful Christmas village at the Atwater Market, Jean-Talon Market is also set to host its own holiday vendors for the second year in a row.

But the most exciting news might be the long-awaited return of the downtown Christmas market.

While last year visitors could only explore a "winter garden"-themed set of outdoor installations at Places des Arts, organizers tell MTL Blog that "the full Christmas market experience" is finally back again this year as the Grand Marché de Noël de Montréal.

Details about all three markets are limited, but complete programming is coming this fall to the Noël Montréal website.

For now, get the dates for each event below.
