Any St. Henri resident worried about what to get their loved ones for Christmas needn't worry, because your borough is throwing a huge Christmas market filled with wonderful wares from local artists, designers, and retailers of all sorts. Hosted by Espace Notre-Dame, get ready to get festive for the first-ever Marché de Noël de Saint-Henri.

Beginning on December 16th and lasting until the 21st, the St. Henri Christmas Market won't be your typical retail bazaar, as community will be the focus of the event. Over 20 vendors will be on-site selling locally produces wares, as will 9 visual artists be on site showcasing and selling their work, all in an effort to inspire you in your gift-buying this Christmas, in hopes that you'll get your loved ones something interesting and made with care, rather than a bland old gift card or the like.

More than just a place to buy gifts, the Christmas market will also feature activities and food counters which will reflect the charitable vibe of the holiday season. Free concerts will also be held in the evening, totaling four as of now, with more expected to be added to the set list.
