Business is booming for Toronto's Holiday Pop Up Markets in DECEMBER.
There are even more this year with the introduction of the HOLIDAY FAIR at Nathan Phillips Square.
Here is the run down on some of the Markets in Toronto.
The Holiday Fair is the newest one modelled after the markets in Europe.
There are rides for the kids, a hollywood photo booth for everyone and food trucks to fill your bellies. This market is easily accessible by TTC with underground parking and it's family friendly. Although it will be chilly come prepared and grab your skates because the skating rink is ready for you too.

The Toronto Christmas Market at the Distillery is rated one of the best in North America and because of that designation it is also one of the most packed markets. It outgrew itself very quickly and lost the enjoyment of strolling through the Distillery looking at all the vendors wares. In an effort to redistribute the crowds they introduced a weekend entrance fee which helped a bit.
Chef Antonio Park has created some Campbells Soup for the Campbells Soup booth at the market. You can get mulled wine and hot chocolate and Belgian waffles too.

55 Mill Street, Toronto
Free during the week and $6 on the weekends
Back for the third year is the Union Station Holiday Market which has moved inside the building this year close to the York street entrance. Better for people running through the station who don't want to freeze their butts off outside. It seems a bit smaller this year but maybe because it's in a bigger space now without tents.
This is more of just a gift market than a family event destination.
Some of the interesting things I saw at the market were this cute Grinch tree, some fantastic chocolates by Moroco and another vendor and some nice Jewellery from Foxy Originals.

Foodie Pages is a box delivery service that has many new Canadian products and they will be hosting this one day event with lots of the vendors that provide goods for their boxes. It's a great way to pick and choose items that would come in a surprise box.
