The holidays are getting closer by the minute and since the snow hit us early this year, it is as though Montreal is getting into the holiday spirit earlier than ever. And, this epic Christmas market will be spreading Christmas cheer throughout our city for yet another year. Montreal is known as a city that is full of hidden gems and Old Montreal is especially a treasure trove. The colonial charm gives off major European vibes and throughout the winter, it is without a doubt one of the most beautiful spots in all of Montreal.
One of those spectacular spots is an alley right off rue St-Paul that leads you to a local boutique called Maison Pepin.
This store curates unique and hand-crafted items including clothing, jewelry, and even home décor. And, during the holidays, the store will be turning the alley into a Christmas market straight out of a holiday movie.
The Christmas Market at Maison Pepin is one of the most adorable markets you will ever encounter.
Occupying the Pepin Courtyard in Old Montreal, the little market will give you the illusion of entering the North Pole.
Starting on November 21 and continuing through December 22, 2019, every Thursday until Sunday, you will be able to discover and experience Christmastime like never before.
This festive alleyway will charm visitors and allow you to get some Christmas shopping done at the same time, making this an ideal spot to visit for both tourists and locals.
There will be Christmas trees as well as numerous DIY workshops to participate in, including gift-wrapping and wreath making. And, there will even be a natural wine celebration for those looking to warm up in the cold.
Not only will this allow you to scratch some of those gifts off your list, but it will also give you a ton of incredible Instagram content. So, make sure you put on a cute outfit, or better yet, buy one there!
