TL;DR A free vegan Christmas market, known as Marché de Noël Végane, will be arriving in Montreal this December 15 from 11:30AM to 5PM for its first ever edition. More details are available below.

We can all agree there's no better time to enjoy sweets and desserts than during the winter. With all of the festive markets and events popping up all over the city, there shouldn't be any problem finding enough snacks, candies, and full-course meals to last us the entire joyful season.

The only dilemma is that most of these popular gifts and goodies aren't exactly vegan-friendly, leaving a lot of people out of enjoying what makes this time of year so enjoyable.

That's why it's exciting to hear what we've all been waiting for is finally coming to the city. Yes, a vegan Christmas market is about to arrive in Montreal. Better yet, it's absolutely FREE!

Marché de Noël Végane is coming to 50 Sainte-Catherine Street this December 15 from 11:30AM at 5PM for the first time ever. 

This is your perfect opportunity to shop for the vegan in your life. With each product, from clothes to consumables, being 100% vegan you seriously cannot go wrong at this new holiday market.

Here's What's Open & What's Closed On Labour Day In Montreal

There are still a ton of things to do this Monday holiday!
  • Here's a short list of what's open and what's closed on Labour Day in Montreal.
  • If you're heading out, make sure to call ahead to your destination to inquire about reduced hours.

Yes, it's a long weekend! Three uninterrupted days to relax, have fun, and not think for two seconds about things like school or work, or other responsibilities until Tuesday morning. Not to be too depressing but it will be six weeks before we get another official long weekend. 

But let's focus on the positive! This is usually one of the summer weekends that people are trying to pack in their last days of camping or chalet time. But if you're planning to stay in the city it's good to know what's open and what's closed so you can plan out your Labour Day weekend.

Announcing Montreal's First Ever Pothole Beauty Pageant

Which is the city's most beautiful pothole?

What we love about potholes here at MTL Blog is that they provide us with an endless number of stories to share. Readers are constantly sending us photos of their favourite holes in the road. Not only that but we've become friends with many potholes around the city.

We see them every day doing their very best to make us late to work and to destroy our wheels so it's about time we give them some love!
