But at the mention of markets you might easily think of those flea markets we see in China, with all kinds of small products and street stalls, like the Chinese New Year sale markets. This is nothing like that. You won’t be seeing a dazzling array of products. Instead, what will greet you is a massive gathering infused with the Christmas spirit and joy. People come here in search of joy, a bit like temple fairs in China.
Like previous years, this festive street market well beloved by Torontonians is still to be found at the colorful Distillery Market. Apart from the large-scale Christmas lighting, you can get a feel of a European style festive market spirit, definitely a romantic experience. This also sees the biggest Christmas shopping activity, with every kind of locally made handicrafts [on sale].
